What a night, and I’m sure that Bonnie and Doug won’t want to visit us again EVER…I’m sorry…honestly…please come back… As it was, Doug got out of the van to ask directions 2 or 3 times, and then we finally, for sure, saw where we were and we were able to make it to “Angel’s Home Hotel” once more. At breakfast we all sat discussing what we wanted to see “this last full day” before the Rohrers were to fly home. The majority wanted to visit the “Grand Bazaar”, so off we went….money in hand. That’s what last days in town are all about…spend, spend, spend. Bonnie, you did a good job, and we can’t wait to see the photos of the kids in their new outfits. This medieval 15th century shopping mall has some 4500 shoppes together with mosques, banks, police stations, restaurants and workshops. It is a great place to wonder around in and most likely, you will get lost. We found that shopping there was fun, picturesque, and fulfilling all at once. Yes, there were those that would try to get you into their shops, but it definitely wasn’t hassling. The bazaar is divided into several different areas specializing in carpets, jewelry, clothing, silverware and so on. We even stopped for tea. It was served on a table that was no more than 10 inches off the floor and our stools were about the same…I thought they were made for little people, but no, they were made for us to suffer on. Now I must admit, one thing that we haven’t neglected, is a good meal. We have had wonderful meals at each and every corner we have gone. The Turkish people, they have great food. You might have to watch the water once in awhile, but the food is wonderful. I know that one thing that we all have agreed, the people of Turkey have been the warmest, friendliest, and most delightful. Fortunately, Louise and I will be here for much more. Well, that time has come. We all climbed into “Bumble Bee” and headed off to the airport. It was time for Bon and Doug to head back home…Thanks for coming, we really enjoyed your visit a lot.
Tomorrow…See the Doctor
