We made many ‘Bul runs to Istanbul to run the Pavyon Night Clubs (I recall a club called the Gondola) and see the sights: the Blue Mosque, St. Sophia, Topkapi Palace, Taksim Square, the Grand Bazaar, the Bosphorus and other points of interest. We also made trips to Bursa, Ankara, Ephesus, and fishing trips to Sapanca Lake, east of Karamursel. -- Lots of fun and adventure!
