Adventure Update from Woody

Now it's Istanbul not Constantinople...


Here I am in Istanbul. This is the view from the balcony of the hotel down towards Taksim Square and then the Bosporos in the background (including ship!). I've had a lovely time here, although some of it was work (sigh!). We've bought hazelnuts and some traditional Turkish sweets to take home to England. Turkey produces over 70% of the world's hazelnuts and I think they taste absolutley yummy....especially in a chocolate cookie!
