Made it to Istanbul. I had an empty row on the plane so I laid down and slept for 90 min or so. People thought I was nuts. They have no idea how little sleep I’ve had in the last 2 weeks!
My hotel here is in the old part of the city. It’s only 2 years old and very modern but it’s on an ugly street and the room is only slightly larger than the bed. I’m ok with it though… It’s clean and in the right location and I think Rachel will be comfortable.
I went down the street at midnight for a chicken doner sandwich and a diet coke, along with Ruffles catsup potato chips. Now I’m going to sleep for about 10 hours.
