Nathan’s wallet stolen/Happy Birthday Nathan!

Last night Nathan had his pocket picked by a gang of clever children at Taksim Square. After some arguing, negotiating, and playing along with their ruse, we managed to get it back — minus the money and transit card — and he was so happy about it that he insisted we go back to our most current temporary residence and make a video…

Today is Nathan’s 30th birthday and despite his losing important funds to the seedy criminal underworld of this great Eurasian megalopolis, he’s in good spirits. Some of our new pals in Istanbul are throwing a party for him tonight.
