First Impressions

Day Two continued....


As part of my vacation, I am determined to go on a diet. A vacation diet. So, here is what I've had so far:
#1. Chocolate chunks from Bethel....I should have jotted down the brand, but they came in a blue and gold wrap and had a delightfully creamy, hazelnut taste. Devoured both pieces in succession.
#2. Salted caramel ice cream from Haagen-dazc. Christine, you will be so envious of me right now. It is just divine.

random observations:
1. If you ever want to know where go find to tall, good-looking and blonde brothers that dress nice, come here. After being only at eye level or below with my fellow brethren in Argentina, coming to the German Bethel was quite an eye-opener, to say the least.
2. There are many many Chinese people here...unbelievable, even just at the airport!

Day Three

wow, thank you Jehovah! I made it here to Istanbul!
I took my sweet time leaving the plane and taking pictures...hey I will be here for another 10 hours so there is nooooo hurry. I'm waiting for my luggage at the baggage claim.
#3 Baritos: chocolate covered Muesli bars. yum. devoured before I decided I should have taken a pic. again.

I am a bit make a long story short, after sleeping overnight at the airport, turns out my mom missed her second flight due to a delay in the first flight. Tomorrow I'll be picking her up .
By the way, there is a 5Euro shuttle bus that takes you from the Hagia Sophia to the airport!

I spent my evening here exploring....
