Istanbul, a very modern city of 12, 500, 000-


Shopping anyone?

We're spending 3 nights here in a hostel in the old town.  The Blue Mosque, Aya Sofya and the Grand Bazaar are just around the corner!  I've already picked out a carpet!  It's Ramadam so after sunset the people are finally able to eat.  The parks are full!

Very much looking forward to tomorrow!
