Where I stayed
The first thing the one sees when leaving the ship is the absolute pride the people take in Turkey, their flag and Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, the founder of the Turkish Republic and its first President, stands as a towering figure. There are flags and images everywhere. The city is clean and well laid out.
Again, we opted for the hop on, hop off. We made the complete tour and, during the tour, we found a starting point for a walking tour
Once we extricated ourselves, we went to find somewhere to eat and have wine. I know no surprise there. We did find a small restaurant and had a great lunch. We walked more and decided to sample Turkish coffee. Found a place to people watch and relax. Good coffee, good wine, yes more wine and Matt found a friend. A beautiful tri-color cat decided Matt looked nice and jumped up on his lap. We jumped back on the bus back to the port.
