We over-nighted in Istanbul. Nalynn and I decided to take it easy this morning as opposed to getting off the ship and having to hurry back. The ship departs at 1:00 pm and it is raining, so we just decided to stay in, have a leisurely breakfast and relax.
Last night at dinner, the wait staff brought a nice birthday cake to the table and everyone sang Happy Birthday to Nalynn. We have a great table with some new friends. Julie and her mother Shirley are from London, and Ed and Lauren are from San Diego, California. We have really enjoyed laughing and sharing stories with them.
We hope you are all doing well. We arrive tomorrow in Ephesus, and are really looking forward to our tour there.
