Back in Istanbul

The train is so much nicer when you’ve got a sleeper. I was incredibly excited by everything – the comfy seats, the bed, the little basin, the little Turkish State Railways soap… I was probably very easily pleased because I’d sent two weeks living with 100 people in a crowded dig house, but it was still all very lovely.
The weather is in the 30s but not as hot as Konya, which has been in the 40s.
My train to Bucharest leaves at 10pm tomorrow night so I’ve got until then to explore Istanbul again.
It’s weird being back, especially around Sultanahmet. Istanbul hasn’t changed much, but I guess I have because a lot has happened in the six years since I was last here.
