We got all out of our Provo apartment and finished up with school (straight A's for both Spencer and I, booyah) just in time to hop on a plane and fly half way across the world, literally. The 15 hours of flying weren't nearly as bad as I thought, thank goodness, and despite two different major delays we still somehow made every flight and got into Istanbul on time.
First we went to our hotel, and on the way we saw some...interesting things.
And then we got to our hotel. I forgot to take a picture of our tiny bathroom The shower was literally 1 foot by 2 feet, and not square.
Lunch was next, and our first Turkish meal did not disappoint. Yummy.
After lunch we went and saw the Basilica Cistern, which I loved. So creepy but beautiful. And to think it used to be full of water.
Then the Blue Mosque, where I did not take any pictures of the inside...oops
