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.

... back off, scarf back on and back into the beautiful mosques. Afterwards, we made our way through the Egyptian Bazaar (or Spice Bazaar) and took a river cruise down the Bosporus. The boat captain of this particular vessel seemed to really enjoy techno music. Regrettably, we were forced to endure the pounding and screeching of pop top 40 dance hits and club music for the entire trip (Dom often broke out into dance). Otherwise, the journey was incredible and we were able ...
... passerby's attention, their stalls overflowing with every variety of Turkish delight and pungent, richly hued spices. I fully intended to come back and indulge however it was not to be. So, three days of religious holidays notwithstanding, we managed to fill the remainder of our stay with some fantastic experiences. I decided to throw caution to the wind and submit myself to the hidden world of the Hamam, or Turkisk bath house. Unwittingly I ventured into the only ...
... I did some reading, some packing and got ready for this tour tonight.
The tour was a Turkish food and culture walking tour with Istanbul walks. It turned out that i was the only one on this tour. My guide picked me up and we got dropped off at taxism square. We walked around the square and then tried some bread, played some traditional games, went to a different place for a kebab, tried some raki, then tried some stomach, walked ...
... too far beneath the Galata Tower.
At the Galata Tower there was a massive line snaking. Maybe because it was a holiday and the only thing open, maybe for the evening lights and belly ...
... a floating barge than an island. During the day it is a pool club and in the evening a hot night spot. Lots of great people watching and dining under a full moon. It definitely had a high end party atmosphere and was a see and be seen kind of place.....we dressed the part as best we could! Kelly and Lara, her classmate, share birthdays in the same week so they were indulged with ice cream and sparklers at the end of an amazing ...
