... still had a feel for the place from his last visit a few years back - that is until we ventured into previously unexplored territories and got a more *local* view of the town.
On Wed 22/4 we entered a few of the sights including Hagia Sophia, Basilica Cistern and Topkapi Palace. Out of those the Cistern is the favourite. On the previous day we also entered the Blue Mosque, another good one to visit.

The artwork and fine details were all nice additions to fun times with ...

After that we climbed a huge hill back to the hotel (we joked that if you combined all the hills in Denmark you wouldn't make it up half this hill) and then after a 14 hour crashed as soon as I got into bed. Yesterday we started our day with a school visit to Robert College which is a private high school that our teacher Maja attended. All of their classes are taught in ...
