... and went again to the Suleymaniye Mosque because even if we entered before we didn’t have much time there.
This day we didn’t have proper lunch, just walking and snacking on the way because Istanbul has a lot of little shops offering a lot of different food and snacks, this included some Turkish delights, Turkish pizza, corn, etc.
