Days 9 and 10 - Istanbul

Ok, now I'm getting lazy and cramming 2 days into one post, but we really have just been resting and going to basketball :) So I thought I would post some photos of our neighbourhood where we stayed on the European side.

Now we are over on the Asian side and it is far more densely populated, but we are lucky to be staying up on the side of a hill in front of a lovely park.

We watched both semi finals in the Basketball last night, with Spain defeating Turkey and the USA defeating our beloved Opals. The crowd for the Turkey game was amazing, and the Opals will play-off for bronze against Turkey tonight. It should be an awesome atmosphere.
