Look who else joined the American Team in the Bosphorus Cross-Continental Swim

We previously blogged about the US Consulate General in Istanbul joining the Bosphorus Cross-continental Races over the weekend (see US ConGen Istanbul in ’2 Continents 1 Race’ Bosphorus Swim). Here are the swimmers crossing the Bosphorus!

Such a lovely day for a swim, too! You can’t be in Istanbul and not fall in love with the Bosphorus.

And you know who else showed up, not just to cheer for the consulate’s team but to join in the swim?
