Istanbul

We’re currently in Istanbul. Just found out from another team that there are problems getting into Azerbaijan – they won’t let right hand drive cars into the country. No other route we can take really, so instead of a nice day in Istanbul, we’re off to sort boring/important things. Joy.

Other stuff of note:

Spent a day driving 350 miles back to pick up Mike’s camera, which he’d left in Macedonia, once we’d got half way across Greece. A long detour….

Toll booths in Turkey are manned by men with sub machine guns to ensure you take a ticket. Seems a barrier would be easier…

Driving in Istanbul is INSANE. Ouch.
