Trip to Venice, Istanbul and beyond:
This time we encountered so many events occurring only once a
year all over. Yes, we went to see
the biennial exhibition in
, but we did not know same sort of biennial art exhibition was being
. We went to Selçuk and
the hotel personnel told us about the wine festival in Sirince.
One morning the main street of down town
was full of vintage cars, there was a car rally from Greek town, whose name
that I heard but forgot, to
. And of course we
heard of this a few years ago, but we forgot about it completely.
We had the best and the worst airline food.
Stay away from whatever they call these vile things served on the
Hungarian national airline, Malev.
The ticket was very cheap though, and the fastest way to get to
. I, Meg, was wondering
if it was really airline food which was served by Air
on the way from
. It was a steak with
bearnaise sauce. The meat was big
and tender, the sauce was wonderful.
In both cities,
, and in between we had so many rides.
A tram car, minibuses called “dolmus”, a
funicular called “Tünel”, vaporetti, ferry boats, as well as
three different airlines, Air France, Malev and Turkish Air.
Along with the pictures of significant interest, we took the
liberty of adding some pictures of the flora and fauna of our destinations.
