Sunday 27th November 2011 in Istanbul


Decided to go on a cruise up the Bosporus today thinking it was a 2 hour round trip, one hour up and one hour back. It was an hour and a half up to a place called Kavagi just before the Black sea and that was it, the ferry stops there for three hours! We weren’t the only ones who didn’t realise that this was the case, as one American said to us “it’s like being stuck on Alcatraz!” All that was there was an old ruin of a castle and fish restaurants, that was it! Walked up the hill to the castle then went and had lunch and that was it. Eventually got back to the centre about 4.30. At least we saw along the Bosporus and wasn’t hassled with people trying to sell you something.
