Heres the last set of pics

Went on a boat trip around the bosphorous on the last night, wouldnt recomend it as the food was awful (something quite shocking as all the food we had was of good standard, i love Turkish food), the belly dancer fell over and the staff were rude.

Captivating--if anything you make Istanbul more alluring than I imagined. Your pics of London make a wonderful contrast.

You can find actually, but not mostly inside of the walls or old town, as Westerners call.

Gülhane Parkı, Emirgan Parkı etc are very nice "old town" İstanbul parks but not as touristic as Mosques or museums or fortresses etc. They are not well known.

ha - i can see my flat. i can't wait to go back to istanbul next year. your night cruise with the incompetent belly dancer and the rude staff sounds hilarious, and looks worth it from the pictures. i definitely want to go on one now.

i also love all the ships in the bosphorus, so romantic.
