Galata Tower by evening

Galata Tower by evening, originally uploaded by CharlesFred.

This tower played a large part in keeping Constantinople safe for so many centuries as it has superb views in all directions In 1453 it was in the hands of the Genoese

Today there is a lift which takes you to the top where you can admiore the views and also treat yourself to an expensive lunch or dinner with belly dancers

Outr most expensive beers were the 11 lire ones we had on teh first day Some poeople we met at our hotel here - the Troya Hotel - pais 40 dollars for beers last night where they were entertained by Russian and Ukrainian prostitutes!
