Hi Friends and Family! Today we woke up at about 7am and had breakfast at our hotel, Arcadia Hotel. For our tour, complaining paid off because we had small tour group and a private guide for the full day Istanbul city tour.
The first stop was the Hippodrome, the remains of a giant stadium that dates back to the 3rd Century AD. We walked …
