After our visit to the Blue Mosque we walked a short distance to visit Hagia Sophia or "Church of Divine Wisdom." This once Christian church dates back to AD 537. It's an impressive complex that has been a museum since 1934.
Ross and Bob made a quick visit ...
Our second full day in Istanbul Shelley was hit with a bit of Vertigo. She was dizzy and not well at all. She stayed in the room sleeping most of the day. We felt so bad for her, but she wanted us out of the room. So Bonnie and I went out exploring again. We didn't really have a plan today either. We decided to chance the Bazaar again, and covered a bit more area. The vendors were still like madmen, trying to sell you anything. Funny thing though, when ...
