Turkey was a trip that I didn't research too much, other than picking out a few sights I wanted to see, and I will admit that I didn't know beforehand that it spans two continents. I found this pretty cool, mostly because I had never been to Asia before, and now I can say that I have!
The Haman experience was high on my to-do list, but it wasn't easy to find one that would be authentic, inexpensive, but also decent. Luckily, one was recommended to us and it was great. I was looking forward to someone exfoliating 10 layers of skin off of me, and to getting a good massage, and I was successful. I wouldn't recommend it for the shy, as I was completely naked and the girl giving me the rub down (ha!) was pulling my limbs every which way like a rag doll.
I've decided that I need to dedicate separate entries to some of the Istanbul sights, so today I'll just leave you hanging with some photos, and the promise of future stories to come.
