Istanbul

I took an early morning prowl round the local streets of Istanbul.   We’re staying halfway between the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia, so well placed to explore the streets when only the shoe shine man was up.   At 9.05 sharp the staff of the hotel assembled outside to honour the memory of Ataturk to the sound of distant sirens and the wailing of boats on the Bosphorus.
