Istanbul (Türkiye). 28°C. Load 006.

Istanbul (Türkiye). 32°C. 62%rh. Load 014.
Caught a few trams and buses to extend our walk (₺17 per trip - about 80c). Aqueduct of Valens (walk along the top closed) > Dolmabahçe Palace (₺1050 - locals only ₺150) > Galata Tower (€30 !). Sites a little pricey. The palace is more modern (1856) than Tookapi and is still used for state functions. The rooms just go on and on and on. Today: 25762 steps, 64 floors.

ahr:81 max:97 weight:66kg shoes: Salomon Speedcross4 GTX (blue)

Troy (Türkiye). 35°C. 30%rh. Load 003.
An easy walk around around on an elevated wooden path with occasional steps. Useful to have the guide point out which walls and ruins came from which of the nine settlement periods (3000 BC to 500 AD). It turns out there may never have been a Trojan Horse at all. Just a embellished story to explain how the Greeks finally got into Troy after 10 years of fighting. Today: 19603 steps, 54 floors.

Gallipoli (Türkiye). $364 - including Troy. 32°C. 36%rh. Load 003.
About 300km from Istanbul. Not much traffic on the 140km/h motorways once we left the city. Visited the beach where the Anzacs should have landed (Brighton) and the actual landing beach (Anzac Cove). Also a few of the main cemeteries (Shrapnel Valley & Lone Pine) and the larger Turkish monuments. And the objective of the failed mission at the high point of Conkbayiri. Today: 12366 steps, 23 floors.

Istanbul (Türkiye). 31°C. 63%rh. Load 005.
Tookapi Palace > Hagia Sophia Grand Mosque > Basilica Cistern > The Blue Mosque. Paid a little more to skip the queues at the first 3 sites. Spent 4 hours at the palace - so many different buildings and rooms to explore. The coloured lights really change the atmosphere at the underground reservoir. Met a few people that wanted to be our new best friends and then sell us some carpet. Today: 22705 steps, 36 floors.
