On Saturday we had to leave Istanbul and we payed our bill for the food and drinks and were happily surprised that it was much less as we had expected !
Our travel agency had told us that they would pick us up at 11 am.
As the suitcases were packed we decided to sit on the terrace and take a last look over Istanbul. Two Greek girls from Athens were fighting with an umbrella, and Dominique helped them, suddenly the umbrella fell on their heads and I only could see their legs. Unfortunately until I had my camera ready it was up again. What a laughter !
They then took this picture of us. Meanwhile the taxi arrived, we had to say good bye and were driven to the airport. Underway the driver told us that Istambul is even bigger than I thought, 140 km from one end to the other ! The petrol is very expensive there, 2 € for one liter ! And the streets are full of cars, and quiet new once.
The check in went smooth and very efficient, everything is very well organized and the airport is very beautiful. We had a little lunch there before boarding.
As our flight was with Turkish Airlines, the seats were turquoise too ! Very comfortable, much better than the planes I normally use.
Mr. G. was waiting for us at the airport and had prepared
Pookie sat with us at table a little disappointed that there was no meat. The cats behaved as if I hadn't been away.
On Sunday I unpacked, and Dominique came over to pick up her two birds which Mr. G had taken care of too. We both have the blues, so the rest of the day I sorted out my pictures and avoided to look out of the window, the sky is as grey as an old mouse !
