Well, I’ve just learned that my employer has booked my hotel room for another 5 days. My checkout date is now September 25. I’ve seen many things in Istanbul, but I have yet to see the Hagia Sofia or the Grand Bazaar. Today, I think I’ll head out for those particular parts unknown. Hopefully, I’ll get a “taksi” driver who is not trying to make a large profit off of me. Until next time ….
