Great to see GOOD FRIENDS in our neck of the Woods

What a wonderful treat for Michael and I to have Rhys and Pam come and visit us in Bulgaria! We had a half day to see Sofia and they off to Ruse for Branch business. Not sure how I got this picture without    Pam and Rhys, but the branch members loved them and they fit right in with their newly acquired Bulgarian phrases. 

 OK, this isn't Bulgaria, it's Turkey. It just so happened that the cruise the Weaver's were on stopped in Istanbul. We were scheduled to be there for a branch conference and met up with them for a day. It was so nice we had an official P-day, it was great!!!!!
 Rhys picked the authentic Turkish restaurant for lunch. It was great with flaming food and seats on the floor. It was really a fun place to eat, as we watched the ladies make our bread.

                                Turkish ice-cream is the best. If you come to Turkey you will had to try it.

 Some sights from the market. This Building has to be very old, you have to love weeds, they can grow anywhere.

We went to the Castle, the Hagia Sofia, the Blue Mosque, the Hippodome, the Grand Bazar, the market and by the spice bazar. And this is what we did to Rhys and Mike, the sign behind them says, "please don't sit on the steps." WHOOPS!  It was a great day, we had so much fun with great friends and have wonderful memories of our time in Bulgaria and Turkey with them. Thanks Rhys and Pam for your friendship. We love you guys.
