First Thoughts

First timer - arrived late last night - bed around 3am shattered - woke about 5am with what I thought wad a tanoid system in the bedroom (it was loud)! Call for prayers! I'm sure we will get used to it but it was a bit of a shook to say the least. It probably shouldn't have been but it's my first visit to a muslim country (I presume it's the same everywhere in Turkay ey).

I did know that prayers where said 5 times a day - I just didn't realise it would be that loud at 5am!

Other than that - beautiful setting, just starting to find our way around.

Weather perfect - sunny but not 'too' hot with a slight breeze.
