Only one single visit to the lovely turkish city of Istanbul ever
and what a show, even though it was a short visit (half a day)
at the Atatürk Stadium in Istanbul (Turkey) – on 25th of May 2005.

The 2005 UEFA Soccer Champions League Final was the final match
between Liverpool FC of England and AC Milan of Italy
a very very gaudy match with 2 old steeped in tradition european football clubs
the first half ended 3-0 to the Italian favorites
second half ended 0-3 to the englishmen
extra time due to the tie score in normal time ended 0-0
the subsequent penalty shootout ended 2-3 to Liverpool FC
so what a gaudy evening.

Flew from german Frankfurt to Istanbul with Lufthansa.


From John Lennon Airport in Liverpool UK was almost an air bridge to Istanbul
an armada of aircraft which organizers called “Operation Turkish Delight”
