... and it was turned into a mosque. In fact, the goal of the Blue Mosque, and the Suleimaniye Mosque in Istanbul as well, was to outdo Hagia Sophia in grandeur. I’m not sure the great Ottoman architect succeeded, although both are impressive buildings in their own right. It is perhaps no accident that less than 50 years after the Moslen takeover that the Pope began construction on St. Peter’s to create an even more monumental “Greatest Church ...

It's late already. ... 6.30pm now and we've just got back from a very nice day. We went a different way this morning and ended up in a quieter neighbourhood just down the hill from us tucked in behind the ever-busy Istaklal Cadessi. We saw a nice place to stop ...

The Blue Mosque was another feat of architecture! High vaulted domes upon domes, with elaborate tiles on the walls and ceilings. This is still a functioning mosque, and closes several times a day for prayers. The floor is carpeted from wall to wall and everyone takes off his shoes to enter. There are extra head shawls to rent if a woman forgets to bring something- Gizem just wore Nate's raincoat.
We are really overwhelmed with the kindness of people ...
