I have not forgotten that I have not yet told you about the rest of my trip to Istanbul. So here are lots of photos from the third day.We started early again as we had lots to see and do.
I loved all the Turkish flags huge and red flying everywhere in the city.
First we went to Chora Monastery which is now a museum.
Saint Sophia(Aghia Sophia).
Yerebatan or Basilica or Justinian cistern.Not suitable for those suffering from claustrophobia,it is a magical environment of wet surfaces,draughts and cold and water running everywhere. The lights and the music add to the atmosphere.Not to be missed.
Museum of Turkish and Islamic Art. We didn't visit it but I loved the label outside.
Capali Carsi.The colours were fantastic.
We then had lunch yaurtlu and iskender kebap.
We spent the evening with Margrit and Bulent our friends.
