A Day in Turkey

Short spent, but we made the most of it. My Grandmother and I took Turkey Airlines to Cape Town, and had a day layover in Istanbul. We took a city tour while there. One of the best parts of the tour, was our walk through the market square. There were a TON of merchants. I liken the square to a Bazaar. Things were so fast paced, I didn't get a chance to stop, and take proper pictures.

We did get a chance to visit Sultan Ahmed Mosque. I believe it's the largest mosque in Istanbul. Truly breathtaking. You know, the history of Turkey is very interesting. Turkey was the epicenter of Christianity and has dwindled down so much in its Christian population. That speaks volumes.

On a more superficial level, I was on a hunt for scarves. However, I couldn’t find any silk scarves at a reasonable price. I actually really wanted very detailed, ornate pieces. But the area we were in catered to tourists. Thus prices were inflated. Turkey, I shall return! Someone please point me towards the silks and scarves. The diva in me will not rest. :-) Plus I need to give you guys a proper blog.

Cheers! God Bless You!
