... foolishly believed the man at the bus counter who told us, oh yes, of course the bus has wifi. Oh yes, of course the bus has television sets with USB points. We were disappointed to discover the bus indeed had TV sets, none of which worked, and certainly no power points or USB points! We were also designated seats up the back, which meant you couldn't recline. Massive fail. Fast forward 12 hours, 3 buses and about 5 hours sleep each, we arrive in Olympos. The only thing to do ...
... apparently made from 20,000 blue 'Iznik' tiles). The Hagia Sophia is closed on a Monday, so we push on to the Topkapi, enjoying the smells of roasted mielie (corn cobs) and chestnuts from the stalls along the way. It's huge - they say you need half a day to fully appreciate every detail, but we enjoy 2.5 hours of wandering through the grounds and queuing for the amazing Harem and the Treasury. 1:30pm: Jasynta's guidebook (from ...
