Good morning! I am in Istanbul for the next five days so here we start- the Blue Mosque in center of the city.
And opposite, the Haghia Sophia. We didn't go in either today because of heavy tourist traffic and because we needed to shop!
Me shopping? Um, no. But we were with Emily's Aunt and Uncle (with whom we, Ben, Emily, and I, are staying) and some of Emily's other relatives were here who were interested in buying...
Never seen a plasma screen in a frame before. Now I have.
... the reason for shopping was rugs. Emily's aunt and uncle are very into rugs (you can tell I still don't know a thing about them) and Emily's relatives wanted some.
I am so tempted to get a counterfeit drivers licence.
There were an obscene amount of people on the street. I could not move.
