Turkey

Istanbul: when I look back on our travel to Istanbul I think of that song ” Istanbul (not Constantinople) ..” , a bit funny how I got that song attached to the memories of Istanbul. Istanbul was a marvelous place that had a wonderful culture with a rich history.

Mosque:
Some people may not fancy the prayers that come through the loud speakers of the nearby mosque during prayer time but I found those prayers to be mesmerizing. Even though the prayers start at sunrise, it served as a personal alarm clock if those who are morning people. The mosques themselves are beautiful structures made and designed eloquently.

Transportation:
The light rail we rode around on in Istanbul was in most cases always a pleasure as it’s reliable and new. In this case many people use it and so it was very crowded most of the time. Besides the light rail I would say the best method of transportation we had was our own two feet.
Housing:

We can’t say enough good things about the hotel we stayed in. It was a mom and pop building and they made us feel special. They were kind, generous and always friendly to us.
