Song of the day: Inshallah - Eskimo Joe
In third world traffic
I'm dead amongst the static
It's coming through my ears
With a prayer mat at your feet
And a smoke that tastes so sweet
You can forget about the one's asleep
If only for one week

... spice market have piles and piles of spices, cooking utensils, Turkish Delight, olives and more spices, also many teas made from many different herbs and flowers. Halfway through the market we decide to find a place to take a break and went into a pastry/candy store. We get water and a little piece of pastry made with honey and pistachio in a light dough served on a plate. We enjoyed the pastry almost as much as the seat. Another couple was sitting at a table ...
... and had good stories if nothing else. I left that night with a distasteful impression, but I realized that could've happened to anyone. It was simply his attitude, his holier than thou judgment, that really irked me. I suppose its important to meet people like that, but it reinforced for me the benefits of traveling alone: when I'm hungry, I eat where I want, and that's good enough for me.

... our usual Frislanday (Friday + island). [For those of you who don't remember or aren't aware, during the summer of 2011, we spent nearly every Friday and a few Saturdays hanging out on the beaches of the islands around Istanbul with friends, lounging, swimming, and grilling dinner before returning to the city.

Per cercare di attenuare lo shock culturale ho deciso di visitare prima alcuni monumenti "europei" della cittą: la torre Galata e l'Asmall Mescid, costruiti dai genovesi nel 1300, la chiesa cattolica di Sant'Antonio e il palazzo do Dolmabache, ultima residenza del sultano e stranissima commistione di stili europei (dal Barocco al Neoclassico) con la tradizione ottomana.

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Prince Istanbul
This hotel is not as good as it thinks it is. It's cluttered and dark lobby and its strange basement restaurant really put me off. The rooms were good though and the beds were comfortable. Or so I was told. On our return to Istanbul me and my friend were horrified to find we (two girls) had been given the honeymoon suite. I complained to the front desk and they told me they were fully booked and there was nothing they could do - they didn't even say sorry. In the end our tour guide argued wiht them and they brought me a fold up bed. I wouldn't have minded if they had been nice about it. It's a well located hotel, but I think there are probably much better ones nearby. Not recommended.
