We are now in Budapest enjoying the sunny warm weather. The temperature has been around 25 during the day and spring is in full bloom. Lots of lilacs, tulips and flowering shrubs.

Our time in Istanbul was very good. We managed to do most of the things we set out to do. The only exception was Dalmache Palace. When we checked it on line on Monday, our last day, we found out it was closed. Oh well, maybe another time.

We saw both the Grand Bazaar and the Spice Bazaar. Very colourful and wall to wall shoppers. If you can't find what you are looking for at the Grand Bazaar it likely doesn't exist. We took several walks down the main shopping district (Ikstikl Street) and did some beer drinking in the area.

I have lots of pictures for your perusal on Picasa.
