Dinner last night with the locals was great. Murat picked us up at the hotel and took us to his flat overlooking the Bosphorus. Beautiful view; great hospitality. Tamer and his wife joined us, before we ventured on to a waterside, seafood restaurant for an outstanding meal and enjoyable company.
We had trouble with our room key when we got back, and again this morning...urrrgghhh. We were nicely surprised upon checkout that the Conrad comped our room service meal. Nice gesture and we didn’t even ask. They knew we weren’t happy campers after waiting an hour last night and a half hour this morning outside our door! They fixed the lock.
Tamer picked us up at the hotel for our morning tour of the Rotary assisted school. Mike will have lots to report to the Mayberry Rotary Club, complete with photos. Interesting project.
We are onboard the NCL Jewel; have met fellow Monaco travelers. The couple we met on the French cruise joined us for dinner, so we are looking forward to spending time with them on this trip. Miss Bee, I had chilled peach soup for dinner tonight in your honor...yummmm. Thanks to all who have left comments...hey Liz!...hugs to all...
