    This was an inexpensive clean hostel-like hotel. The location is perfect. The guests need to be in pretty good shape as there are lots of steps.

    ... Cistern. This is a MUST SEE. The site was originally home to a basilica, and was converted to a cistern in the 6th century. It measures approximately 140 m long by 65 m wide, and has 336 marble supporting columns (2 of which have Medusa heads as their base - thought to have been brought to the cistern, that is not carved in place, for unknown reasons).

    ... I ended up finding a pair I liked but was quoted a ridiculous price. I offered what I though they were worth. The salesman insisted that he had started with his best price. No problem.

    Up first thing this morning for a trip to four islands off the coast of Istanbul. Near to the hotel is a tram stop which serves as a direct route to Trabatas which is the boat terminal.

The first stop was at an island called Kialiada which used to be the summer retreat for the Armenian Bishop and the ...

    ... isn't much fun when you can't really buy anything. Although I managed to buy a black cashmere pashmina and bartered it down to half price - that's me sorted for the Iranian embassy on Monday! There were loads of beautiful lanterns I would have liked to buy but unfortunately they are not very practical for a back pack or to post home.

    ... time I offered her some eggplant we bought at the market. She harshly declined it. I kept insisting but she kept declining it. I gave up. Some spark initiated in her and I started to feel uncomfortable. I left. I walked back to my caravan park and spent the rest of the day with my family going around the beautiful city.
