We are now sitting in the Istanbul Airport waiting for our flight to Rome. They charged us $1350 to carry our gear from Izmir, through Istanbul to Rome–ouch! There are six of us: Janet, myself and the crew: videographer Joe Reynolds, sound guy Mike Riley, artistic director Tray Goodman and all around helper and grip Chris Noah. We've finished in Turkey and will arrive in Rome at 4:30 PM. We start early Tuesday.
