      This is the second stay at the Halic on this trip. The first night our room overlooked the busiest street in the city, and was very small. Fortunately, on the last two nights, we had a room at the back of the hotel, and it was lovely. Being on a corner, in room 324, gave us extra leg room, and a view to the courtyard. In the morning, I could see the buffet table through the glass ceiling below the courtyard. Breakfast was wonderful, with many choices for all tastes. The bathroom was large and well appointed with hair dryer and shampoos.
      There were many restaurants about 10 minutes up the hill- a nice walk in the evening. From that point you can walk quite a way down a pedestrian mall, to Taksim Square. Be sure you get a waffle for dessert!! Toasted, spread with melted chocolate of your choice, and layered with freshly cut fruit, then folded and wrapped in paper. Yum...especially when you sit on the upstairs balcony and watch the night crowds-
      Just down the hill from the hotel is the river, and another must-do is the Galata Tower, for a 360 view of the city. We walked across the Galata Bridge into Old Town, and strolled the Grand Bazaar.

This token is required to operate the turnstile that leads to the tram platform. Within 15 minutes we had arrived at Sirkeci, one of the tram stops nearest to the entrance of the Grand Bazaar. This megamall is allegedly one of the world’s most exciting shopping experiences. (Now that must be the mother of all oxymorons if ever ...

Perhaps my favourite dish (desert) was baklava; not only did this piece of heaven leave you on a high (undoubtedly because of the high sugar content), it included includes layers of filo dough filled with nuts, (more) sugar and cinnamon covered in honey... Delicious!

Their shops in the Arasta Bazaar are called Jennifer's Hamam, but we went to their new showroom/warehouse, 3 floors of delectable merchandise. Our friend Gunduz works here but we couldn't chat with him because he was seriously working. We'll catch him next time. This was our final evening and we drifted down to the harbor. The streets we passed were like the old days of our ...

He kept screaming that we owed him more, I said he owed me 7L. He cussed at me and gave me the 7L, I got out, he sped off around the corner. What a bugger. We sat down and worked out we ended up paying 83L for a 18L ride. We spoke to the hotel ...

      It took us four buses, a plane a tram and a rapid transit train to get us back to Istanbul from Izmir. Now, as I write this, we are at the Ritz Carlton in a room with a king sized bed overlooking the Bosphorus and Sea of Marmara.
