My favourite bit of the journey from factory to hotel is passing through this old city wall. Did it for the last time today. It was snowing too. Off home tomorrow to a bit of sun hopefully. It’s gotten real cold here suddenly.

I couldn’t for the life of me remember how to spell the word skewer. Maybe it was due to that gigantic glass of delicious Turkish wine the waiter poured. They don’t seem to go by the standard drink rule round these parts. Refreshing.

Slightly different angle on the same breakfast view from the hotel dining room. I’m now starting to get my bearings. That is the Blue mosque on the other side of the city across the Bosphorus that I visited yesterday and the tall arches on the left are the remnants of the old city that we will drive through in about 20 minutes when the driver from the factory comes to pick me up. I’ve decided to stay a further 2 nights to get through all the work. So it’ll be another overnighter for those ladies tonight I think. Sorry ladies.

An amazing day today. I did some serious sight seeing along with many other Sunday tourists. This is a group of women peering out of the window from inside AyaSophya museum looking out at the Blue Mosque across the courtyard. Looks like we’d all stepped back in time.
