Our hotel here in the Sultanahmet district is beautiful and close to everything. We saw a stunning performance by Whirling Dirvishes last night, toured the Haghia Sofia and the Blue Mosque yesterday, and were twice sucked in by very clever - and very nice - rug hawkers.
The food here is incredible, the people very warm and friendly, and we have lucked out with the weather.
Today we practice our haggling skills and the tour the other side of the bay.
More to come.
