The Metro and Tram were as busy as we remembered from the last time but we knew where we were going this time. We settled in and went for a walk nearby for dinner at a very good 'cheap and cheerful' restaurant called the Meat House. Very good lamb and chicken shish!
The next day we headed into the New District. We didn't realize that it was the anniversary of last year's Geza Park protests in Taksim Square where ...
