Istanbul: Standing at the Crossroads, Part 2

Originally, I was supposed to catch a 10:30 am flight from Rome to Istanbul, but due to the lack of people wanting to risk a visit to Istanbul in the wake of the spring bombings, that flight was canceled and I was shuffled over to a 7 am flight.  Which sucked, in one respect.  However, I got to Istanbul before lunch, and was able to have a nice lunch before hitting the sights.
