Istanbul is a world class cultural and business center, the former capital of 3 empires, and one of the largest cities on earth. I lot of important people live here or pass through here all the time. Nonetheless, I was surprised and excited to see on Twitter that my all time favorite athlete* Larry Fitzgerald was in town. Totally considering waiting outside the nice hotels to get an autograph.
