17 million people living in Istanbul and it's amazing that they all don't crash into each other on the highways, but somehow they avoid it!!! Thanks to Gursel, after a nerve wracking drive to Istanbul we made it to our destination for the day! First stop,,,,Underground Mosque. Built in the 17th Century, part of the ottoman Empire,this place has a beautiful cemetery, tall ceilings and very old ornamentation. There is a lot of restoration going on to preserve ...
... to make a dash – you never know. He is headed the correct way and we head into traffic. After about 20 minutes he points up ahead and says Grand Bazaar. I pay him the agreed amount and because he didn't demand more I happily gave him a tip.
We make our way to the Grand Bazaar and it is wall to wall humanity. (How did Rick Steves find a clear area to film part of his travel show here.) The market (constructed in 1455) is amazing. Locals are ...
