Day 9: The Other Tour – Dinner with live traditional Turkish band

We finished our long, involved day at a Turkish restaurant.  We had been on our feet for over 11 hours and were completely exhausted.  I nearly fell asleep at the table!  It was a lovely place, though.  Exposed brick, soft lighting, and lively music created a warm, friendly atmosphere.  They had a traditional Turkish live band playing for us and the food was traditional too.  It was very good, of course.   We tried raki for the first time that night.  It tastes similar to ouzo, like black licorice.  Chris hardly ever drinks, but he took to ouzo and raki.

Good food, good people, good conversation all added up to a fantastic night to top off an already amazing day.  Our third night in Istanbul was complete!
