    Hulk on Holiday (went a lil' overboard with the pics)

    I just got back from Turkey last week and, as usual, I couldn't resist snapping a few pics of the Hulk. In fact, I think I may be having a bit too much fun taking pictures of the Hulk while I'm on vacation. Needless to say, it started up a few good conversations with some locals. It really is a good way to meet people when you travel.

    Feel free to add captions.

    Paul, send me your email address and I'll ship them your way.

    Outside the famed Blue Mosque in Istanbul


    Inside the famed Aya Sofia (Hagia Sophia)


    The Hulk headed inland to Kayseri where the lanscape is somewhere between a cross of Tatooine and the background of a Roadrunner cartoon


    Christians escaping persecutions from the Romans carved homes, churches and pretty much everything into the sides of mountains. Hulk wonders why there are no Planet of the Apes figures here.


    Hulk mistook this outcropping atop Uchisar Castle as a giant Pterodactyl. Can't say I blame him.



    But always time to smell the flowers in Ilhara Canyon.


    To the west coast where Hulk took the stage at the ancient city of Heiropolis


    But Hulk still took time to relax in the supposedly-healing waters of Pamukkale.


    And, of course, a stop at the famed ruins of Ephesus near the coast.


    Sorry for nerdin' out on such a scale, but I hope you enjoy the pics

        Wish I could have taken him to Kuwait with me.. It would have been funny to see him with some locals on base and downtown Kuwait City.

                    After reading the POTA boulder in the gym story elsewhere on the museum, I was just imagining the trip through customs. I could have been very interesting.

                    Custom Agent: What's this?

                    Wee67: The Incredible Hulk.

                    CA: Why are you bringing a doll to Istanbul?

                    Wee67: It's an action figure, and he's on vacation.

                    And so on.

                            Looks like Hulk had a blast, although he probably would have had a little better time with She-Hulk to travel along with.

                              Awesome pics! Did anyone ask you why you were taking pics of a toy in front of the historical sites?

                              'Cos I believe, I believe that I do,
                              Yes, I can see I believe that it's magic
                              If your mission is magic your love will shine true."
