346: Antalya

I'm in Antalya in Southern Turkey. The temperature is 3 times what it was in Scotland last week. Here is the view of the Mediterranean from the hotel balcony. Marvellous. Not that I plan to be in it very often as I'm not a great fan of swimming but it's nice to look at and run along the beach.

I award the hotel -3 stars for a variety of reasons.  Perhaps I'll expand on that in another blog but this morning I must get out and soak up the sun. First though a few photos from Istanbul where I spent Tuesday (flying in on Monday and out on Wednesday). I did the usual touristy stuff by visiting the Blue Mosque, taking a boat trip on the Bosphorus and having fish for lunch in one of the myriad restaurants situated under the Galata bridge (which spans the Golden Horn).

the spice of life (in big piles)

the open-deck tourist bus seems to be in every big city in the world.

dancing ships!

hustle and bustle

lots of new build too
