This day was the end of the sunny warm winter we have experienced pass few days.
I peeked my head out the window in the morning and lo and behold not only was it drizzling, it was also freaking cold and windy!
Tapi makeup was on fleek.
We went to a place called Duvares that has a fireplace. We love love fireplaces!
Menemen for breakfast.
When we were sitting there, the owner of the restaurant, invited us to see his kitchen and the area behind.
There was a demonstration in front of Hagia Sophia when we passed by.
Eeee so cold and raining cats and dogs too!
Then we were ready to be picked up by our tourbus!
Anyway there’s a cemetery there of Abu Ayub Al Ansari. The story was back then when Prophet Muhammad SAW (PBUH) migrated to Madinah from Mekah, a lot of people berabut rabut wanted to host him. So in order not to hurt anyone’s feelings he said, “where my camel stops, thats where I will stay” so the camel stopped in front of Abu Ayub Al Ansari’s house. 🙂 Now he is laid to rest there. 🙂
Then the tour ended and we were sent back to the hotel.
At night we had a fabulous (and super expensive) seafood dinner!
But we are so sakai.
At the end of the night, the waiter kept on saying “service” but we didn’t know what it meant.
Rupanya means please tip. How embarrassing haha. Ok people when in Istanbul remember to tip generously!
Then eventhough early we all rushed back to the hotel pasal HUJANNN.
