" Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be."
Abraham Lincoln

I am a money magnet
Everything is a mindset

" Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up."
Edison made over 1,000 attempts before he created the first long-lasting light bulb, but he simply viewed every failure as moving him closer to success.

Fourth part of my journey, 02.06./03.6.10:
Yeah in our budget of only bread and water, we definitely included the ferry for 70 Cent! So the next day we planned to get up early to get one to Eyüp in the morning, apparently a beautiful place with a sweet cafe on top of the hill with a special cemetery. L: " Dejan told us there is a really cool and beautiful funeral we should go to" G: " Beautiful funeral? Okay, weird. How does he know this?" E: " Hahahahhaha! I think you mean cemetery, don't you!"
As the party only ended in the morning though, we slept first and eventually got to the ferry at 4 pm. Jon and Gareth gave us company. Well I'm not sure if this was such a good idea because we managed to take the wrong ferry, back again and managed to take another wrong ferry and ended up in Asia which was the complete different way. A bunch of 4 jerks. Hilarious. On the third attempt we made it to Eyüp. Gorgeous place really. Very enjoyable and cute. Not as hectic as Istanbul. The special thing was, as we dawdled so much time away getting on the right boat, we had only 1 hour left to catch the last ferry back. Pity! Still happy.
On thursday, on thursday tried to sort out many things to provide a safe journey back to Germany. Nothing worked, instead went up with Stefen that other hill with that tower and that big street. Yep. Ha, and we drove a hard bargain with the sunglasses seller or maybe we just looked too pitiful, he had sympathy with us. Either way we got our fake Ray Ban sunglasses almost for free, that's the only thing that counts. In the evening we celebrated life again. We had a blast till the morning, again. I mean listening to Joe LaJoie says it all. The owner of the hostel just came up around 8 am with new travellers showing them around, pointed at us and said totally casually as if that would be the most normal thing ever , " and those are the 24 hour people" and went on.
