Our Adventure Begins - First Day in Istanbul

We made it just fine to the hostel. Metro to Tram 1 and off at Sultanamet stop. Short walk and we were there. After a quick stroll around the area we got a kabob from a street seller for dinner.

Flights are about as cheap as the bus or train so we are flying this afternoon to eastern Turkey. Tomorrow we will take a bus to Georgia.

After breakfast this morning we walk to the edge of Europe and looked across to Asia. The Straits were alive with boats fishing boats, ferries, and cargo ships. From there made our way back through a park along a fortress wall to the plaza by the Blue Mosque.

We sat in the sun as the faithful were called to midday prays.
