... the accident happened and walked up the hill themselves. I felt absolutely helpless though - no point in getting involved - I'm a woman for a start, a tourist, and also don't speak Arabic.

It's 6 am and we arrived in Istanbul. We knew it was going to be an overwhelmingly big city but once we started driving through it, we were blown away at just how huge it was. With over 13 million people, Istanbul was by far the biggest city we had been in and just to top it off, it was nowhere near as warm as we thought it would be.
