Next morning at 8 we were going out from home. Where? To the Tajikistan consulate. We need Tajikistan visa in order to be able to apply for an Uzbek transit visa, which we need in order to apply for a Turkmen visa, as the plan is going from Turkey to Georgia, then Armenia, Iran, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and al the stans.
In there, we visited a few mosques, watched some praying times, visited the Spice Bazar, the Grand Bazar... all these typical things everybody visits in Istanbul. Beer, back home and next day it was time for Topkapi Palace. I wasn't able to go there when I first went to Istanbul, so this time I made sure I visit it.
And after Topkapi, we decided to go to Ankara and try to find the Tajikistan embassy there, it couldn't be worse than Istanbul, the bad thing is that Ankara is not supposed to be a really nice and beautiful city to visit. Will see how it is and if we are lucky enough to find the embassy and, most important, to finally get the Tajik visa there.
