Off to Istanbul

Tomorrow I’m off to Istanbul.  I’ve said goodbye to Poppy, delighted to be in her holiday home with Hans and Margaret, I have (vaguely) tidied the house, dashed off a few pages on my blog here, downloaded some pages about transport and things to visit in Istanbul, found my missing Turkish visa – and now I cannot avoid packing any longer.

I fly from Marseilles, so I suppose one last piece of procrastination before getting down the suitcase is to check out long-term carparks at the airport there.

I will be spending a couple of nights in a cheap hotel in the Fatih district of Istanbul, then across the river for four classier nights with my daughter Jude and family in the Beyoglu district and then when they leave, back to Fatih for the last three nights, in another cheap but interesting looking hotel.
