Turkish Delights

Greetings from a very wet and cold Istanbul. This is my 5th visit to this fascinating city, Jon and Barbara's 2nd, and Amanda's first.
This morning Jon and I met up with the conference manager of the President Hotel, where Processing of Industrial Minerals '10 will begin on Thursday. We have 59 delegates registered at the moment, our latest, from Saudi Arabia, bringing the number of countries represented to 14. More delegates are expected to register on Thursday.
After the meeting Jon and I met up with Barbara and Amanda at the wonderful 6th Century Aya Sofia (left).

Then onto the Grand Bazaar, to buy things that we didn't really want, before returning to the hotel to dry out.
