Turkey!

Hmmm. Turkey, it’s a strange place. In Istanbul at the moment, and believe it or not it’s raining! I’ve had interesting interactions with locals from the best of human nature to the most scrounging little-minded people that you can imagine. One friend here had a mislaid phone returned with a smile – that was lovely to see. On the other hand I was walking along the street last night as a shoeshiner ran past, dropping his brush from his tray. I stopped him and returned his brush, he then proceeded to clean my sandals then tried to charge me 30 lira for the pleasure… Not impressed with that!
Weather has been good until this morning as it is now warm rain – what a novelty!
