All I want is a horizontal space.

UGGG. I have bragged forever that I have no problems sleeping on a plane… well that came to an end last night. It was a 10 hour flight and I got less than 3 hours of sleep. We left JFK at 6 pm local time to arrive around 9 am in Istanbul. The hotel let us check in early and when I got into the room I layed down on the bed. Ohhh that nice clean white fluffy comforter felt soooo good! All I wanted to do was to stay in my horizontal position for a while. My body screamed for me to just lay still in this position for a while! AND it was raining hard outside; the idea of running around in the rain while my body begged me for this bed was painful!

Alas I managed to have breakfast, go to the grocery store, visit the very impressive Blue Mosque, a Museum and have dinner and return to the hotel by 6. Now it’s a fight to stay awake until about 10 as to actually beat the jet lag. But I don’t think i’m going to make it!   uggg.

Here’s the view from the hotel room.
