Turkey

Off to Istanbul

We shared an early morning taxi with one of our tour group. We flew out of Tashkent for the 5 hour flight back to Istanbul, saying goodbye to him at the Istanbul airport.
Once we obtained some local currency, and enjoyed a nice cappuccino (none of those available in the Uzbek desert), we caught a shuttle into Istanbul. We located our apartment, and wandered through the streets to SultanAhmet, home to Hagia Sofia and the Blue Mosque.
Later, we found a really fabulous little restaurant where we enjoyed a great meal.
