Turkey Part 5
More touring with Erol and Nuray and their friends, a visit to Rumeli Fortress, tea at the attached restaurant, and then a ferry ride for more high-fat authentic food... somewhere... in Istanbul.
The next day, the Blue Mosque, a brief visit to the Turkish Cultural Center and carpet shop (inside an old converted Turkish bath) and some other pictures of Sultanahmet.
Finally, our last night in Istanbul: I discover the best baklava ever (made from pistachio), one more dinner with our new German friends, a last trip to Taksim Square, and we're off to London.
