The weather has become warm in Istanbul. Clear blue skies and mid to high 20's have been the norm for the past week but the afternoon is more humid. Our Panama hats, which we bought in a market about 3 hours from Quito, have been on our heads. They cause a look-back by locals; we stand out like the proverbial J.

So I went to find an Internet café and emailed around my résumé and lettre de motivation to lots and lots of language schools.

... to the main attractions. Sultanahmet is the European side and across the Galata bridge is the Asian side.

Our first appointment was a spa, but not just any spa, this was a Turkish bath from the year 1500 AD. Aranaea had suggested that a rough scubbing by a Turkish man was just what would make me feel better after 15 hours on planes. Let's just say I was a sceptic.
