Didn't feel all that great after last night, but still got up reasonably early. Somehow mom and Penny found thier way back to the hostel and showed up as I was finishing breakfast. We walked down through Gülhane park (small zoo, etc.) to the docks. The afternoon was spent on a boat touring the Bosphorus. Afterwards I went back to the hostel and did some more research on the Middle East. met Mom and Penny for dinner. We ended up going back to the same place as yesterday. It was still good.
