There were a few men involved in the ceremony. All but one were standing around a podium singing scriptures similar to call and response. The other man involved in the ceremony was in a separate room participating in the call and response as well as the one leading the ...
... had to be dissolved in water!!! Lets just say that all day Sarah was sculling this rancid concoction, and needing to pee every two seconds! Awesome!:( We wandered around the streets getting our bearings and some of the small cobblestone streets beckoned us in! What a place Sultanahmet is!! So pretty and so much history. We found ourselves in front of an entrance to the Topkapi Palace - which unfortunately was closed on Tuesdays (as a little boy conveniently pointed out to ...
