Topkapi Palace

By far my favorite place in Istanbul has been the Topkapi Palace. I think Rhonda agrees! The tile work exceeded even the Blue Mosque. It was built in the 1400's as the administrative center of the Ottoman Empire when they took Constantinople. Suleyman the Magnificent turned it into his palace a century later. It overlooks the Bosphorous, Sea of Marmara, and the Golden Horn. Prime real estate! Outside the gates is a huge public fountain built in the ...

Turkey - Gallipoli, Olympus, Blue Cruise

... at Lone Pine finished that it started raining! We had to sit in the rain while waiting for the buses to come in. They had set up a number system for the buses and at the start it was first in best dressed. We were number 28. They called you through to the ceremony area by bus numbers and as we were leaving it was similar. They had the numbers of the buses come up on the big screen a bit like Keno. When your bus number came up you went to one of the queuing areas and ...

... Topkapi Palace eating a Doner Kebab and the sky was blue and the sun warm; perfect. The smartest thing we did today was buy a 5 day pass to the museums and sights. Not only is this the cheapest way but you can skip the amazingly big queues. We wonder if this was because it was a holiday (most of the people seemed to be Turkish) or just really busy; we will find out soon.

... yogurt, kind of an acquired taste for a beverage.

The remainder of my day was spent calmly walking parts of Sultanahmet that were unknown to me. I searched for small side streets so as to embrace hidden shops and less touristy areas. I finally found myself in a textile shop where men and woman sat on the sewing machines and looms right in front of you. It was on the far side of an extremely poor part of town, so I had avoided the flash ...

... went out. I had to wave my arms to get lights again. They are very energy efficient. Impressive. Water- you can't drink the water from the faucets here no one does. It looks fine and smells fine and you can brush your teeth with it but you can't drink it. Everyone uses bottled water and they have those huge water bottles like we have on stands (think water cooler) but they have ...

    After arriving around 11:45 pm, I was greeted warmly by Murat. I sat my bags down and he invited me to go out and have some "Hot" Apple Tea. I sat out on front of the HOtel and took in the sights. After my Tea, I went back in and finished up my check in process. After 9 hours in flights with a 4 hour lay-over, I was really tired and wanted a bath more than anything. I was taken to my room and boy what a room it was. I thought that I was in Heaven. I had booked a single room with shower but I was upgraded to a double with a bathtub/shower combination. The tub itself had 9 pulsating jets. I couldn't get out of my travel cloths fast enough. The room was well appointed. The room faced the cobblestone street overlooking the Ozare resturant. It had a large flat panel TV, (though everthing was in Turkish), large closet with an extra comforter. Small round table with two chairs and a large Cheval Mirrow in the corner. Small frig. The bed was nice and comfy with side tables and overhead lamps to read by. I liked it because when you got off the elevator, the lights in the hallway light up so you can find your way. I was told by Murat that there would be an "all you can eat" buffet breakfast starting at 7am in the morning. After a good night sleep, I arrived at the Buffet and WOW what a spread it was. Fresh fruits and all kinds of vegatable, several kinds of fresh baked breads, cold cuts, scrambled eggs. This was "Buffet" at it finest. Oh by the way, they do have fresh perked real coffee but you have to be there right at 7 or else it is instant Nescafe and we all know how that taste. I enjoyed my stay so much that I booked an additional night. All of the staff that I dealt with were accomadating. (They even went looking for a glass of wine for me after the Bar had closed down). That was a nice touch. They do have an area opposite the reception desk where you can lock away your valuables. They also have a resturant where you can order off the menu during the day and evening. I had the Grilled Chicken once and it was delicious. I can't wait to go back again. Really can't wait to go back. By the way, they do have a "Trip Advisor" recommendation behind the desk for all to see.
