We started at 6 am, caught a bus from Secuk to ‘almost’ airport. dropped off on highway, and walked to airport. flew to istanbul. metro to our hotel. dropped off my backpack, emptied megans and took it with us to get the …. drum roll… wedding dress and full attire. (Have I mentioned the suit, the rings. Evalee’s dress, my dress and all our shoes, etc.. are included in this adventure?) so then, a bus, metro, ferry, bus, dolmus to pick up the wedding dress and all, and the rest of Megan’s things… then a taxi and dolmus, ferry and metro back to hotel. I think it took 8 hours on a very warm day. Megan says 5. Either way, it’s all worth it… the wedding attire has been safely stored by a lovely family and now is ready to go to athens. After a night in a dorm hotel. Gotta love how frugal Megan is… and how many people you meet in these hotels. It’s late, must go to bed… but do know that there are magical treasure gathering for the wedding dress, and Papa’s pant leg was surrogate dress as we explored extraordinary places in Turkey.
oh! the day started with a huge tropical storm and ended the same. but sunny and warm in between!
