          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

          ... pistols are cheap ones that hold a bit of water, buckets and the stupid ones we have are also used anything really, my personal favorite were the fake ak47's . We try to steal water from the buckets but they get cross. Bemused the man who seems to be the leader of this whole event takes us under his wing a bit and trains us to be his soldiers. He shouts rallying cries and everyone chants back, waving their pistols in the air. I want ...

          The Strait of Bosphorus, while not crystal clear of course, was much cleaner than I was expecting for such a big city. We spotted a few white jellyfish and some small silvery fish (maybe sardines?).

          ... liked this church and it has an incredibly high ceiling and ancient feeling to that church that was actually never converted to a mosque.

          After Topkapi, we ventured to Hagia Sophia which has an eclectic history of being used for many different purposes. It is an enormous structure with some beautiful tile. Right next to Hagia Sophia is a underground Cistern that we explored. It was built during the Roman times. Right before we went into the cistern ...

          ... this one is as cursory as all the other ones at the most unlikely places, train stations, subway stations, park entrances, etc. The strange thing was that they were oddly formal about tagging the bags that were "safe" and had an extra 3-4 check points for passport and boarding passes and carry-on "safe" tags before the actual boarding of the plane.

Of all places to go we ended up at the place that might as well have had a bright neon TOURISTS DRINK HERE sign at the top. So we all had a good laugh at that and after a pint (we at least ordered local beer) we headed off in search of our next suggested destination, hoping dinner would turn out better.
