      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.

      ... problems. The riots were quite exciting actually, we had prime rooftop seats to watch the action, though we often had to go inside when the tear gas became too much. The riots were actually pretty tame though, there wasn't a lot too them, we watched a group of about ten guys and a few kids play with rubbish and small fires who were quickly dispersed by police with tear gas and flash bangs. Less exciting were the bed bugs in our room (thanks Debbie for telling ...

      ... for the main hub of a major carrier in this part of the world. It is stylish and had lots of little areas to get hot dishes, olives, tea/coffee, veggies items and even booze. Its only drawback--pretty significant--is staff was very slow coming around to take away others' dirty dishes. Email access eventually obtained though a bit wonky.

      Emails, web news, walks, peanut runs, a cheeky beer, organizing brick brac already collected all helped to pass the time. ...

As I walked through the front entrance the first thing that catches the eye is the large glass chandelier hanging from the roof, along with the fashionable furniture, giving the whole lobby a ...

      ... city developed into a thriving metropolis. For me, it was busy and vibrant. The thing I struggled with primarily was the amount of smokers on the streets and public places. I swear I've shaved 10 years off my life because of second hand smoke. There was not as much smog pollution as Hong Kong, but the air is still not clean. I've got yet another sinus ...
