Location: Turkey

MapThanks for lovely messages, it makes us feel loved.xx
After sitting on tarmac on flight to Bejing for two hours we were advised to bail as chances were better out of Hong Kong to Istanbul rather than Beijing. At that stage we had a four hour wait and China had closed all airspace dure to "bad weather".
we found a loveloy Cathay Pacific staff member who got us on flight to Rome at 1 am. We were rushed onto flight, sat on tarmac for two hours and then 12 hour flight, at least we were asleep for some of that time. We were met in Rome and whisked through immigration and put on flight to Istanbul. Arrived yesterday afternoon minus luggage.

It was so nice to arrive at a lovely small hotel with a warm welcome and a horizontal bed! We are still in clothes we left in, (we have used both sides)! legs like tree trunks and black bulging slashes under the eyes! Never mind the looks! We are having a great time and we are hopeful of bags arriving today or before we go to Gallipoli.
Here are some pics taken from hotel terrace where we sit for breakfast.
