Istanbul bound

I’m off to Istanbul for two days tomorrow with work. They’ve booked me out Economy Class but I’m returning in Business Class. That has to mean something.

My last real experience of Turkish culture was in 2008 in Berlin, where a large proportion of the population is Turkish. Indeed the Kreuzberg district is known as Little Istanbul.  We were fortunate to be there the night the Turkish national team beat Croatia with a last minute extra time goal in the Euro 2008 quarter final to send them to a penalty shoot out and ultimately a semi-final match against Germany.  The whole town went bananas and my friend Stephen Foster was around to take some images of the celebrations, which he’ll be along with soon.

    Are you sure it was Croatia?

    I reckon that was one of the best nights of winger’s life. I remember that it was fun. 🙂
