Not So Blue Mosque

Not So Blue Mosque

In Istanbul, Turkey.

Inside the spectacular Blue Mosque.

I went here a few years ago on a pretty brief business trip. This is definitely one unique city, at the crossroads of Europe and Asia, Christian and Muslim. The interior of the Blue Mosque was so so beautiful, it was a heavenly experience just being in there.

Quite a contrast from the Hagia Sophia just a short walk away…a centuries-old mosque, former cathedral and now museum. The trip to Istanbul is worth it for checking out these mosques, palaces, the Bosphorus, and Grand Bazaar. Pics of those things to follow in due time.
