widely used to decorate the Ottoman sultans former home, the Topkapi
Palace, including the Harem for 400 concubines which we were able to

... Church (which is distinct from Greek Orthodox and Russian Orthodox) did them in for the day, so Benoit found us taxis and, as a group, we were done until evening supper.

Did I mention that it was raining nearly the whole time? Precipitation did not slow us down (to be honest, anything slower than our group's walking rate would have been called "stopped") as we picked our way through the curvy stone streets and culinary delights of ...
