We have arrived in Istanbul and are enjoying the sights, sounds and smells. Istanbul is truly a wonderful city. Lots to offer and lots and lots of people. We are staying at a lovely hotel in the Sultanahmet area, which is full of tourists and many of the historic sites.
I have replaced my camera with a similar model. It is an upgrade from my original camera with a few extra features. It's easy to operate because I have the experience from the old one. I do have to get used to some of the detail settings because I realize some of the photos are over-exposed.
We went up the Galata Tower and took some pretty spectacular photos of the city below.
Here is a link to some of the photos from today.
