Istanbul Trip - Part 4 - The MIFC Conference at the Ritz-Carton Hotel
Next morning is the day of the conference. Only then can one appreciate the taste of the Turks on their interior designs.In fact, I would say, very European.
Loads of wood. Even in the lifts.
They provide free Turkish Delights for guest at the lobby. A variety of them.
A very grand lobby.
This is something that you may not see, ever, a shoe shine station. The brass bottles both sides of the seat contains the various shades of wax for shining shoes.
A picture from the night before. View towards Istanbul, the Asia side. In the middle is the Bhosporus Straits.
Before the start of the day, got a chance to go the gym. Impressed with the facility. Very modern.
Only in the morning, I got a sense how hilly Istanbul is. The whole city sits on series of small hills.
The hotel swimming pool.
Another view of the city.
Tall buildings are not in apparent.
A good turnout.
The first speaker on stage. I went on after this.
