We have arrived in Istanbul and I thought the Polaris Lounge in Newark was nice. The Istanbul Airport is absolutely beautiful. Kevin and I both agree that it’s the prettiest airport we’ve ever visited and Kevin has been in many, many, many more airports than me. The entire airport is like a huge mall with shops everywhere and beautiful detailing on the walls and ceilings.

And I haven’t even got to the Turkish Air Lounge yet (for business class travelers). We are sitting in comfortable leather lounge chairs surrounded by food stations where chefs are preparing various Turkish dishes, as well as Asian cuisine, a beautiful salad bar, dessert bar, coffee bar and even a movie theater and a slot car racetrack for kids and adults.

This is not a bad place to relax for 4.5 hours. We are now 11 hours ahead of PST but will gain back one hour when we get to Ethiopia. My body clock is adjusting especially with that 90 minute nap I just took on our flight here.

See you in Ethiopia.
