From here we were able to walk to the famous St Sofia which is no longer a church but has been nominated as the 8th wonder of the world by many historians. It certainly is a beautiful building.

Bottled water is sold everywhere including the side walks ranging from 2 to 7 Lirasi at the Blue Mosque (must be holier water). Temperature 33 - had pizza in room went to bed around 9 ...
