My First trip to Istanbul and Dubai

Yes, Istabul - Turkey.

I would be astranged if I did not check in at the Ritz Carlton Hotel, with the view of Bosphorus!
My trip before Istanbul was thru Paris, so I have eyed up some Morrocans at the airport loung in Paris, then Istanbul , and belive it or not, they happen to have checked in the same hotel.
On my check-in to the Hotel, I saw them again, they were going out to dinner, and given how stylish they wore, I could not help but to ask where they were going and the hot spots around town. It so happens they are frequent travelers to Istanbul and so i decided to join them, bringing my friend alonmg, who was suppose to meet me at the same hotel. My friens lives in Dubai and we decided to meet in istanbul as he was planning to vacation thee and I was doing my glob trotting. I have know him for years, so I know i could tag him along eveywhere.
