    ... of the east Roman empire, this giant underground complex had over 300 marble columns supporting its roof. Inside it was beautiful, and although there were lots of other tourists, it didn't feel crowded. We went to find the two heads of Medusa, and after we decided to go full tourist and get photographed in Turkish costumes. The whole process of getting the photos felt very abrupt, I swear that we had 50 photos taken but the photographer didn't look at us once. ...

    ... over a bridge with thousands of men fishing from it. The waterways are incredibly busy with over 140 large vessels coming and going each day. (Thanks David).

    ... see in the pic, the large dome is not supported by any columns. Here's some amazing facts. It was built in the year 530 - 537. It served as a Greek Orthodox Church from 537 to 1453. Then from 1453 to 1931 it served as a Mosque. In 1931 it was secularized and turned into a museum. If it was still in use it would be the 3rd largest Cathedral, or the 4th largest Mosque in the world. The mosaics of Jesus, Mary, and the Saints are done ...

    The day started with excitement; the Turkish Tax Office, probably like every other tax office in the world. We met our agent and started the paperwork for the car. Actually pretty straightforward and we should get the car on Tuesday; if not I guess it will be Wednesday and we will have to stay longer; and the problem is?
