Hotel Empress Zoe, Istanbul

Yes, we are in a small room (by non-English standards). But the garden The breakfast of fresh pomegranate seeds and thick yogurt (there was so much more but I'm typing with two fingers). The ruins of the ancient hammam snuggled up to the hotel. The shower with GOOD soap and LOTS of water and a _heated_ floor. The Haghia Sophia floating in the air behind us. And the blessed WiFi. Aaaah.

Right. It was raining last night and we really only got in, ate, and called it a night (at 11:30 PM local time) and went back to our rooms and read. It's somewhat overcast but mild. Time to go explore the city.
