    Marmara Guesthouse is in a perfect location to enjoy the old city of Istanbul. It is quiet and comfortable with a lovely view over the Bosphorus. This family run guesthouse offers help with local tours as well as arranging trips throughout the countryside. Very good choice

    Forty two years ago Shane and I left Istanbul with a bag of puzzle rings a box of meerschaum pipes and a couple of quite 'interesting' embroidered goat fur coats.

    ... the beach burials and among them was John Simpson ( The hero and his donkey), I did take some random photos of headstones, I don't know of anyone who is buried here.

Testi Kebab is a dish where meat and vegetables are cooked for three hours or so in a clay jug covered with clay. The pot is then broken at the table. Lots of ceremony was involved for the French group who had ordered the dish.

    ... crowded tram home back across the bridge and made it home safely. I equate it to taking the blue line home after the taste of Chicago on a Saturday night. Very very hot, crowded, and smelly.
