I take back everything I've ever said against Sultanahmet. It is so much nicer here now. I definitely recommend staying in this area, as long as you carefully vet the street, since there are still some seedy corners.
After a refreshing shower, I decided to wander over towards the ...
... You could tell that he was really disappointed, so I said, well, why don't you join us to walk around a bit, and then us GIRLS can shop. He happily agreed.
Adrienne had emailed me, and we'd agreed to meet between the Mosque'. It was soooo good to see her smiling face again. I made the introductions, and then the 3 of us set off. We walked and looked, and Mete explained some things to us, and Adrienne shared some info that shed learned on a ...
