...Turkey's delights...1
We landed safely in Istanbul this morning, alhamdullillah. We are here to participate in European Network for Housing Research (ENHR) 2010 22nd Conference ...with the theme of Urban Dynamics & Housing Change. As the venue of d conference is at Istanbul Technical University's Faculty of Architecture in Taksim part of the city, we decided to stay within walking distance of d uni. Taksim is actually a 'slightly' posh area of Istanbul on its European side...so d cost of d hotel is quite high. For d 1st day, we just ceq-in, register at d conference venue [a 20-minute walk] n tried to ronda2 to Topkapi Palace...but ended up in Topkapi cemetary...huhu

here we r...@ Ataturk Airport...after a MAS flight from KLIA

took a van from d airport to our hotel...actually u need to haggle d price of d van n it is pricier if u go to d 'official' counter. We were joined by a group of Korean girls, stopping in Istanbul for just 1 day, b4 going off to Brazil for a year...in order to learn Portuguese...tabik spring kat bebudak ni

waiting for d conference registration counter to open @ d uni...n accompanied by a Turkish cat

d uni is quite old...but still usable n looks structurally strong

while walking to d uni we noticed d word Topkapi on d bus...n decided to hop on one. BTW, public transport is very much in use here...with various type of rides available...

...including this long bus...using d bus lane along d hiway

...n it turned out that we were in Topkapi cemetery area...with d above wall-city is located nearby

headed back to hotel later n decided to dine al fresco not far from our hotel
