... massaged. I have never seen so much dirt and dead skin come off me. Elizabeth was called "Baby" again, just as she was in SE Asia. When we exited, the boys were playing backgammon and having tea. We felt fresh as we walked back out onto the hot streets of the city.

... shop/buy a tour or little knicknack. We probably had at least 30-40 guys try to sell us something in the first 30 minutes or so. It was tough.
We got to the Blue Mosque just in time for it to close for prayers so we went to the Basilica Cistern instead. This was something we were both looking forward to.
