Day 8 - Istanbul

Today was an official rest day in the tournament and a travel day for us to move to the Asian side of Istanbul and closer to the stadium where the finals are being played. It took us close to 2 and a half hours to travel 9.5 kms to our new accommodation. 

Our new digs are wonderful. A large garden for the kids to run around in. A large suburban block on a hill overlooking the enormity of Istanbul's Asian side. Our hosts are lovely and have two teenage children that are very friendly and they play soccer! The kids were very excited.

We did some shopping and had a nice quiet afternoon in the Lovely Garden.
