The Irish team got onto the ice today at the stadium in Erzurum for a practice session. This is certainly an interesting place. Like a scene out of a Star Wars movie.
Not only are we having to cope with the height of the city at 5,000 feet up but the flamin’ hotel is 3,000 feet higher still. Oxygen cylinders could be on the shopping list – if we could find a shop.
First game lunchtime tomorrow.
EMCC Irish Girls, but who is who?
Hazel and I arrived in Istanbul yesterday. After eating out in a roof top restaurant last night with a fantastic view of the Blue Mosque and Aya Sofya we spent today touring those same sites. But the surprise package was the Yerebatan Sarnici – basically the city`s Roman underground water cistern. Simply amazing.
