An interior shot of Aya Sofya. Frecoes and mosaics, marble, massive vaulted ceilings …..
The view from our room… We are surrounded by mosques with their graceful minarets on three sides and the busy Marmara sea port is on the forth. It’s amazingly quiet as the streets are narrow with little traffic.
An interior shot of the Blue Mosque …. Awe-inspiring!
Aya Sofya. As old as the city itself. First a Christian church, then a mosque, now a museum. Glorious on the inside. It seems a bit cumbersome from without.
The Blue Mosque. Now this building is stunning from inside and outside!
posting pictures is proving difficult…. So that’s all for today. We’re off to see dervishes whirl this evening.
