... t much more to do in Izmir besides museums or shopping so we kept wandering around with the occasional drink stop before going back to our hotel to chill out in the lounge until 8pm before we went to the bus station. At the bus station there were water cannon trucks and riot buses of police, turns out they are all on alert because of the up coming election, in Istanbul there has been major protesting and political riots.
