This morning, Ozzy and I woke up early, had a big Turkish breakfast, walked down to the light rail and took it down town. We walked for 5 hours, 6miles, 14,800 steps….ALL OVER TOWN.

There was so much to see, smell, taste…at the end of the day I had over 900 photos!! I couldn’t figure out why but then learned that a setting on my camera was on continuous shoot so now if you flip through them real fast they make a flip book movie!! I wish I knew how to do that digitally, but alas I am not that tech savvy.

I am picking up a few more Turkish words, though mostly everything I know pertains to food, therefore his mother thinks I am always hungry!! When we arrived home she had an amazing dinner prepared again! But there was a miss communication with his brother so we jumped in the car and drove across the city for dessert. It only takes about 20 minutes to get there. While there I uploaded pictures to Facebook and ate a plate of 4 or 5 different pastries, including a coffee, chocolate, pie cake thing…very yummy. And of course, drank more tea…always tea, with food without food one can always find a cup of cay waiting for you.

We crawled into bed around 2am and had to get up and leave for Baris’s by 8am!! Another adventure awaits tomorrow at the sea!!
