When you buy a ticket with Turkish Airlines that involves a long layover in Istanbul, they put you up in a hotel. So here we are in Istanbul at the Hilton en route to San Francisco (baby)! No time to visit the Blue Mosque or any of the other Istanbuli sights but we're making the most of these plump pillows and lily-white sheets let me tell you. Not too mention the frosty air-conditioning which comes as a refreshing change after a long spell of torrid nights in Bordeaux. The accommodation we have lined up for the next three weeks may well not be up to our new standards. See you on the other side!
