In 1934, the founder …

Today was the first day of the Eid and the end of Ramadan so a lot of places were closed in the morning. I decided to do the walking tour in the Western district starting around Edirnekapi (taken there by taxi). My walk today was plagued by wrong turns and missing street signs. I was lost the moment I got out of the taxi and ended up enlisting the …

... fresh water for the city. This is a 1700 year old water system that the Turkish used. When I went down into the system underground it was dark at first but then as I continued to walk down and looked towards the water I could see the pillars that hold the system together (from the lights that were added in the water). It looked sweet. As we continued our path and came to the end of the system there were to giant pillars that both had the head of Medusa. On one pillar the head ...

We began our last day in Istanbul (for this stop) with another beautiful ...

    Nice hotel on a pedestrian street and only a few minutes walk from Taksim Square. The rooms were large and comfortable but unless you request and get an "inside" room, you might be up all night with the folks walking the street until all hours of the early morning. We had a TV, free internet access, and a coffee maker in our room. The restaurant is good but not great. It is a long, but beautiful walk across the Galata Bridge to the Sultanahmet Mosque and Grand Bazaar but on a nice day it is worth it.
