Initial concerns about where we where going to stay were laid to rest when we walked through the door. The greeting welcome set the scene for what was a great stay experience. The location to the key 'must see' attractions is an added bonus. We will be back

Anyway we did get to practise our haggling skills again. I mean why buy something for 225 Lira when you can get it for 130 - come on. Upon returning to the boat we watched a new sport.

Both the Turkish mosques and roman churches are from roughly the same era. No matter how intricate tiles are, it's harder to be blown away by them versus renaissance art pieces. But visiting a mosque is far more relaxing affair with less crowds. I'm surprised by how relaxed the security guards / minders are about letting foreigners (even women, ...
