The AC works in this hotel room!!! Heather froze all night, I slept like a baby. She woke up to the 4am call to prayer, I was busy sawing logs.

Chora Church was built in the 11th century and contains some outstanding tile mosaics of Christian Motifs. The ceramics were covered over when the church was converted to a mosque during the Ottoman era and have now …
