Of Harems and Hagia Sofia


Emre told me he hadn’t seen many of the old city landmarks himself in many years, and so he agreed to take me on a little tour of the old city. We took a walk from my neighborhood, Taksim, all the way over to Sultanahmet where many of the most famous landmarks are. We saw the Spice Market and the Topkapi Palace and the Hagia Sofia and…then I needed a Turkish coffee and to relax a bit. I mean, I will be here for three weeks, no need to rush everything in at once. My head is already spinning from the amazing things we saw today. For a look at the album, click the link below.
