I spent the night in Istanbul last night after an evening arrival from Prague en route to Cyprus. Turkish Airline was quite considerate to put me, and several fellow travelers, up in a hotel in the city. I had only a little time to walk around this morning and took this picture from the hotel balcony, looking across the street onto a street market that I later walked through.
I mentioned in my previous post the hotel U Suteru in Prague. I didn't have time to post the photo from the lobby yesterday, so here it is. I'm posting thumbnails of these to save you time. I hope that you can click on the thumbnail and see the bigger image. If not, I think you can view them in the photo gallery.
I must go get my boarding pass now, grab a bite of lunch here in the Ataturk Airport in Istanbul, and then I'll be on my way back to the family in Cyprus. I talked to them last night, using my Skype-Out account which is the only reasonable priced way to talk, and they are doing well. I hope they have many pictures to post on the blog, but just have not had a chance to upload them and describe their adventures.
