On one of our cruises we visited the beautiful and incredible city of Istanbul. One of the cities I would love to visit again. I have a few photo’s from our far too short visit.
There is this giant Grand Bazaar with its heart in the old town. It has 4000 (yes) shops under one roof and 65 alleys connecting all of them in a disorienting conglomeration where you easily can get lost. It is a small city into itself, a giant puzzle.
There are almost 3000 mosks and the skyline of Istanbul is punctuated by their minarets, large and small.
I will tell more about our trip another time.
Sailing on the Bosphorus also known as the Istanbul Strait. Looking at Istanbul.
Hundreds of different spices in the Grand bazaar. That smell was unbelievable and doesn’t the look of it make you want to buy just anything.
Grand bazaar where you can buy just about anything.
