Up early and said goodbye to some Scenic friends and Makis and Anetta. The transfer person dropped us off at the wrong terminal, so we had a bit of a walk to the correct one. The flight to Vienna took 35 mins, changed planes and flew to Istanbul which took 2 hours 20 minutes. Good flight but was a bit bumpy on occasions. We caught a taxi to the Lady Diana hotel in the old part of Turkey. The exterior and foyer are very nice - the room is okay. It was advertised as having a bath, well, it does, but it is only a half sized one, but I guess it's better than none! The room is quite small, but it's okay.
The restaurant is on the roof overlooking the Sea of Marmara, the Blue Mosque (Sultan Ahmet) and Saint Sophia Mosque. It is really quite lovely. We had dinner and went to bed. It rained while we were having dinner - poured!
