May 15, 2007

After a 12 hour flight from State College, Pennsylvania, finally arrived around 2pm in Istanbul Anaturuk airport.  Had a pick-up from the hotel that I was staying in.  After dumping my lugguage in my hotel room, I took the tram from Sultanahmet (place where I'm staying) to Taksim.  From Taksim Square, I walked through Istiklal Caddesi, Beyoglu's main street. (Yes, the first day in Istanbul and I end up shopping :) )  The street is bustling with people and modern brand name shops line both sides of the pedestrian only street.  A historical tram runs through the street.  I ended my walk at the Galata Tower where I enjoyed a 360 degree view of Istanbul.  The view was fabulous!  Ended the day eating my one and only doner in Istanbul :)
