After a very long delay at the Ataturk Airport in Istanbul, because of the grab of money known as a visa, we finally made it to our hotel room in the heart of Sultanhamet. The ride was long but exciting because of the narrow cobblestone streets where the bus barely made it by other vehicles and obstacles.
Later that evening we had a very light dinner at a over priced restaurant around the corner from our hotel. The pide was very good however.
The next morning we went to the airport again to take a plane to Tunisia. The weather was pleasant and the city streets were bustling. We took in the madina and I have uploaded a video to the picasa site so that you hear the sounds and see the sights.
The picture is of Avenue Habib Bourguiba, the main upscale street in Tunis. It was full of people night and day enjoying the many cafes.
