Class ended at the ferry so I took the scenic route through the Grand Bazaar.
Then I finally visited Sultanahmet Mosque (Blue Mosque). I wasn’t prepared so I had to borrow a shawl at the entrance to cover my hair. This place is huge.
It was a great spot to rest and take in all the details. Here’s the courtyard.
On my way out I tried to take a photo of myself and a guy offered to take it for me. Of course it’s not that simple. He wants a whole conversation and I just want to leave. And I did. That’s the thing with Istanbul, if you want to talk there’s plenty of people who are willing.
I asked a fellow tourist to take one at Hagia Sophia.
My intent was to go to bed early but I found new roommates.
