Friday after work we haded to Luton and, after very pleasant meal headed off with Nicky and Alan to quiz night which was fun.

Saturday we got some food at the airport and good seats on th Easyjet plane to Istanbul. We were held up for over an hour as someone had forgotten to close a valve after filling the drinking and toilet water tanks. It didn't take long to fix but we missed our slot. Apart fro that the flight was fine. We took a taxi to the hotel as it was getting late and we were hungry. Had a very good meal and a few beers then watched the basketball in which Turkey won the semi final. There was much jubilation.

Yesterday we almost missed breakfast. Then all day long it rained and rained and rained. We got umbrellas but still got very wet. We just wandered around this beautiful city in the pouring rain.

Last night we had a very good meal at Oceans 7 then beers whilst watching the basketball final (which Turkey sadly lost) then back to the hotel terrace for a while before bed.
