5451 They are very loud, lol and love Italy to death and their beautiful cities and wish no one else did so could enjoy them properly, lol. Would love to go back one day without the crowds in the off-season!!! When we entered Istanbul, we sailed right past the Blue Mosque and the Hagia Sophia - what a stunning entry into Istanbul. Visited both and loved both!!! Really stunning architecture!!! And the underground cistern was incredible too. Istanbul was an awesome city!!!!

5452 And Ephesus . . . this ancient city so well preserved. They have only excavated a small portion of it, but it is an incredible experience to walk along the ancient roads and climb up the steps of the amphitheater, etc. The Turkish people seemed really happy to have us experience their cities and wanted so badly for us to enjoy it. They were so warm and inviting. Such an awesome experience!!

5457 By the way, best church ever is St. Mark's in Venice . . . . . we had a private after hours tour of the entire thing and it is the most gorgeous church I've ever seen!!!!!! I've been to Venice several times, but had never gone inside and so, so, so glad I finally did.

5460 Yes, lots of pics inside. Apparently it isn't normally allowed, but they let us, so my son took lots and lots. Every inch of every wall and ceiling is done in gold mosaics!!! Will post pics soon.

 

Yes, to spinach and feta pie even though stale, lol. And maybe some dolmates (spelling?) Hey, could you send me one of those Greek goddess dresses? You know the gauzy ones? Would like to wear it while eating my stale Greek food  :D

 

Dublin? Yeah!!! Will be fun, I'm sure. Please give Bono my regards and ask him to kindly send me a copy of the latest and greatest tunes!!! Are you doing a driving tour of Europe this summer?

5461 - My friend has a shop which sells those dresses so can get you one of those. And the vine leave things, and pie :)

And Dublin will be great - me and my friend for three nights just listening to that lovely accent *swooooooon*  And will pass the message to Bono!

And no driving this summer, will make up for it next year!
