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.

Today I woke up at 7:00 am, changed and then watched the birds outside until the rest of my family woke up at 8:00 am. Then my brother and my mom showered while my dad and I looked at the maps and books about Istanbul. Soon after, we all headed downstairs for breakfast. It was a buffet type breakfast and we all tried at least one of everything. There was so much delicious food, ...
... Simon and me. We talked for sometimes, and he seemed like an interesting person. He told me his hobby was collecting vinyl music disks. So whenever he travels, he goes to this small shops, and tries to find local music on vinyl. Apart from his seemingly boring job, he also does part-time DJ work. Pretty cool. He later told me he was gay and how easy it is in Germany to lead that lifestyle rather than places like Turkey or India. Finally, I headed to sleep without completing the ...
... acting as a
blockade against ships who wished to enter. The tower is also the setting of a
number of love stories. Due to this history, there were a lot of couples milling
around and some serious PDA. I guess it must be a romantic first date spot for
locals. There were Gypsy women selling roses to add to the atmosphere too. We
saved our money and spent it on a chicken kebab instead.
We left Asia on the ferry, and headed back to Eminonu. From here we set ...
... I decided to make my way back to the hotel and finally make a plan for what I wanted to do for tomorrow. I had delayed it enough. Once I got back, I still couldn't bring myself to any decisions. At this point now I was just feeling lonely. For me I had been avoiding a lot of the loneliness by always staying on the move. A new location meant new things to see and do, which meant no time to think about anything else. Despite Dan and I having discussion about us ...
... I knew I wanted to travel to "when I grow up." Dennis and I have a lot more of the country to explore over the next month, but I have finally visited my grandfather's homeland. My paternal grandfather, Anthony Sado, died the month I turned two years old. He lived with us for portions of those first two years of my life, but I have only very vague recollections of him. His stories are the stuff of family legend, though, his lore passed down to my brother, cousins ...
