    Sorry it's a bit late Scratch.Try the Holiday Inn. The BIG one on the coast that you can see from the airport. Good luck out there. I spent 3 months in the place working with Turkish Airlines and it nearly drove me mad!

    Don't s'pose this'll help but a couple of mates were in a Nigerian cafe in Manchester the other night drinking an 8% Guinness brewed under licence out there.

    Did they offer to buy you a drink, but insist on paying 5,000 by cheque telling you to give them the balance back by Western Union money transfer?

    Posted a bottle of Newcastle Brown and 20 Embassy no1 to a mate who'd gone to live in China in the late 80s (when that sort of thing was very hard to come by there).Cost of postage, duty etc was significantly higher than the goods themselves.

    Ummmm. Newcastle Brown. Benson and Hedges. Richard and Judy. Coffee with no sh!t in it. I bloody well love England! Sniff. Gawd Bless 'er Majesty.

    Found it: JAMES JOYCE (Zambak Sokak 6, Istiklal Cad., Beyoglu, PHONE: 212/244-0241) Its 5-10 mins walk from Taksim square in a wee side street off that main shopping pedestrianised one. I did few weeks work out there in Istanbul in Novemeber - its a fine place. Turks really friendly.
