I set off after breakfast and in the course of the day visited the Grand Bazaar, the Basilica Cistern and the Topkapi Palace. Each of these will get a separate blog. This blog covers the rest.
The hotel provides slippers as did Turkish Airlines.
Slippers for sale.
There is a separate blog for the Grand Bazaar.
Interesting old wall.
A cemetery for Sultans.
A separate blog for the Basilica Cistern.
Signs of Spring.
Our daffodils probably will be over by the time I get home.
Walking to the Topkapi Palace.
The Topkapi gets its own blog.
Interesting obelisk with Egyption symbols.
I will have to look it up but this screw shaped thingy is very old.
You see a few dogs but quite a number of cats.
It is a rabbit warren of narrow streets and I used the GPS on my cell phone to navigate.
Dinner. Marianne reports that Catty-watty is missing me.
A refreshing cup of tea that cost about 70 cents.
