The teapot looks like a double boiler. Hot water in the bottom and very strong tea in the upper half. You fill the glass half full of tea and then add water. It is very good.
While in the park where so many tulips were in bloom we found ourself tired and hungry and near several small outdoor cafes that served Turkish tea, coffee and other goodies. We found a table beside a low wall where we could look out over the water to the Bosphorus. This is the busiest seaport we have every seen. There are little ships, big ships as well as various sized ferries going in all directions. If you are a captian of a ship here, or a harbor master you surely have to keep on your toes. There must be a method behind the madness of all the ships going to and fro, but I don't know what it is. It must really be fun when the entire area is socked in with fog and rain.
We are retired librarians. Nancy worked for the Board of Education and Bill operated a one person engineering library for a communications company. Travel has been one of our passions our entire marriage.
Originally we thought this blog would report only on our trip to Prague. However, we have decided to add entries and photos previous trips. We hope you enjoy them.
