The weapon room was keenly viewed by Andrew; the workmanship of the armoury (bows and arrows, rifles, pistols, mace, daggers, swords) and the associated items such as diamond/pearl encrusted chain mail (oh yes!) is extraordinary.

Of all of the cities I have been to it is definitely number one on my list to go back too. Vi ses for now Istanbul! Next adventure: ...

Istanbul to Doha to Melbourne

A travel blog entry by lizmcconnell


... a few days. We were shocked by the amount of rubbish lying around, but the local municipality was trying to collect it.
