Fullerton, CA
We arrived here in Istanbul last night...lots of rush hour traffic between the airport and the Intercontinental Hotel so it took forever. I got talking to reservation clerk when he saw we were from Fullerton. He's coming to So.Ca the end of October and had so many questions. He saw on my passport that it was my birthday so upgraded us to the beautiful, huge executive suite with separate living room, 2 baths and floor to ceiling windows with great city view. NICE!

We had wonderful dinner with Olivia up on the top floor restaurant. It was so neat catching up. I know what a fabulous trip this will be, it's already off to a great start. This is such a neat city, I just love it here.

Made it to our hotel. Finally!! Friday at 6:00 pm
What a mess at Istanbul airport going through customs.
Hundreds of people trying to get into the queue all at once.
Very long lines. Then had to wait about 1/2 hour for shuttle
to arrive, then rush hour traffic made it take 45 minutes to hotel.
This morning we slept in. Doing a 1/2 day tour this afternoon.
Jeff & Helen arrive after midnight. Tomorrow meet at 9 am
and hit the sites hard.
Really impressed so far with the Amira Hotel.and location to the
old part of Istanbul is great.

Today is March 17, 2014
I just read where after April 14, 2014
you will no longer be able to get a Turkey visa at the airport
when you arrive. Everyone will be required to do it ahead of time on line.
