Another early start yesterday, even with the extra hour, and after breakfast we were back on the road to tour the city, visit the mountain where the Unknown Soldier memorial is, the Telecom Tower (I kept my feet firmly on the ground, thank you very much) and we went off to see where Peter the Great lived. A church was also included and the time flew by as we basked in the glorious sun.
Lunch was a traditional meal with the local beer and the waiter asked if all was well. As with me, Orhan is quite straightforward and said my scoff was cold (hardly a problem as it was still fine and they were catering for nearly 200 guests). The waiter was most apologetic and brought over another beer- on the house as way to apologise.
