Istanbul, May 2022

Bosporus Bridge, connects Europe to Asia and is thus a bridge between two worlds.
Hagia Sophia. Once a church, then a mosque, then a museum, and now a mosque yet again. Once entered, all your worries are left at the door.
Blue Mosque, Istanbul. Built by the sixth Ottoman Sultan. Hagia Sophia is considered the grandparent of all the icons in the historical area of Istanbul, and the Blue Mosque is the grandchild.
Divan-Humayun (Imperial Council) located in the Topkapi Palace, which served as the seat of the successive Ottoman Sultans. Where the Sultan’s ministers would meet to discuss governmental and imperial affairs.
Baghdad Pavilion, where the Sultan would spend his leisure time with his family. Truly beautiful.
The library at Topkapi Palace. Not as cool as my library (sarcasm) but wonderful nonetheless.
Tastes better than it looks.
Grand Bazaar, Istanbul. ‘Organized Chaos’ to say the least. A true spectacle.
Cheers.
