This is Hagia Sophia, a former orthodox church, catholic church and mosque. It’s use, shape and decoration varied over centuries, depending on the history of the city itself.

This is the Grand Bazaar, which, unlike the more authentic ones in Iran, feels more like a tourist attraction.
We spent one evening at a the Turkish dance show.

As you can see, I was the guest star 🙂

Here you can see me catching actual knives on a wooden plate placed on my belly.

We spent a few days at Ceren and Bertan’s place, together with their dog (forgot the name, sorry!). Thanks again for hosting and guidance!

We followed their advice and took a boat trip to Buyukada Island, a very popular tourist destination.

Birds kept chasing the ship, picking up food from people’s hands.
