Well, when we got to Istanbul, I really loved it.
The magnificent sight of the great Ayasofya rising from the buildings takes your breath away.
I was immedietly hooked.
After we had spent a couple of days there, we got in contact with some of our relatives here in turkey (my aunt’s cousin).
We talked to them over the phone, and they graciously invited us to and opera that our relative was preforming in.
The opera was great, and they invited us out for some very tradional turkish food. (delicious of course!)
The next day, Aunt Nerman, (as she is called,) cooked us up a great big dinner that she and her daughter Cagnur worked on all day.
Sadly, Cagnur could not eat with us, but Aunt Nerman was plenty of company.
We talked for a few minutes, and then she brought out the food.
I have never seen so much food!
And all of it was absolutely delicious. Aunt N kept trying to get us to eat it all, but it was not humanly possible.
We walked out of there waddling like stuffed ducks.
