Last night was wonderfully fun. Pretty much the whole group went out. We got a little lost on the way to the first club, but with our practically non-existent Turkish and a lot of pointing some of the locals helped us find another one. Istanbul is so great at night. We met so many nice people. We ended up hanging out at a hookah bar afterward (and no mom, it's not bad for you :) haha), and let's just say we had a very friendly waiter.
Unfortunately , today was just sad. I ended up catching some kind of 24 hour virus or something - so while I attempted to go sight seeing with everyone else, I couldn't do it. Now I am back at the hotel, which makes me very unhappy. I do feel better though - so I will be up bright and early and ready to see things tomorrow. Luckily, our guide from UGA said that there are boat tours going on all the time (which I very hesitantly missed today) - so I will go on one of those tomorrow afternoon.
Here are a few pictures from Istanbul that I took yesterday (but couldn't get to load). Hope you all enjoy.
