George’s Painting Note: We stayed in this historic and beautiful hotel in Instanbul. This original elevator is used for all arriving guests. We loved riding in it – once! Staying here was doubly fascinating for me because I was reading Charles King’s recent, “Midnight at the Pera Palace.” The author used this hotel as his focus for a history of Turkey since 1900.
