The Ancient Roman Cistern under Istanbul

PSA: How to Escape from Quicksand!

This looks rather handy… I’ve only been in quicksand once… but it never quite got to knee-level… so I was lucky. If I had seen this first, I would have been less panicked! 🙂

Daily Photo – The Ancient Roman Cistern under Istanbul

If you make it to this city, don’t miss this spot! They didn’t let me take a tripod in there, so I had to get pretty inventive when it came to securing the camera. Sometimes I would just jam it up against one of the columns… and that’s what I did here! The only way I could get it stable was in this off-center way, but decided it looked pretty cool!
