Blue Mosque in Istanbul

Blue Mosque in Istanbul

Istanbul is such an amazing place. I love the food, the people (when they aren’t trying to sell me a carpet), the music, the hamams and the architecture. We could have spent days at the Topkapi Museum; it’s like a city in within the city. An intriguing item on display is a hair from the beard of the prophet Muhammed which, along with a tooth of the Buddha seen in Sri Lanka,¬†we tucked away in our memories¬†(can we collect all the body parts of the great men?). However, visually more spectacular and possibly more memorable is the fantastic Blue Mosque with her iridescent domes.
