Where I stayed
Upon arriving to the hotel (40 Turkish Lira lighter) we were greeted by the kind folks at the Yasmak Sultan; what we didn't know was that this would later be our prison because we booked way (way) too many days during Turkey's freezing rain season. Laura was excited about the prospect of a fancy Turkish hotel with sauna/baths, gym and breakfast inclusive, only to later claim this was the saddest example of all of the above. Who eats olives for breakfast? I found perhaps some of the worst cheeses I have ever tasted in Turkey and I love cheese!
So what the heck did we do for 7 days? That is easy: we ate lots of Kebabs and Kebab related cuisine.
Between kebabs, we toured the Topkapi Palace (the grand seat of the Turkish Sultans and Ottoman Empire). Witnessed the living quarters of the Sultan's 1,000 wives (the Harem) as well as some of the greatest Mosques of the entire world.
