Hi, I am an OAP and off on 1st March to Istabul with an even older friend from Australia !! the main purpose of our visit is for her to see the Gallipoli memorial and to spend some time at Lone Pine where her grandfather was killed . Other than that we both want to see Aya Sophia and are staying in a chain hotel nearby .....I want to go back to Haida Pasha cemetary to photograph as many of the tombstones as remain of the staff and patients of Florence Nightingale`s hospital at nearby Scutari , which I also hope to visit this time , it was closed last time . Will hope to keep a small blog going whilst there . Thanks for reading this .
