The Suleymaniye Mosque
The Grand Bazaar (dating back to 1461)
In the Bazaar they were having a big celebration for the Turkish Futbol team Super Lig. They were singing and chanting up and down the allies. I joined in for a little bit. The man next to me tried to teach me the song they were singing.... "something something manee habba!"
Our private boat ride around the European and Asian sides of Istanbul
My lovely room mate for the week Camilla!! Originally from Columbia, this Latina fire ball has confidence and sass galore! Construction management major at BYU-I and recently has learned how to clean a bathroom for the first time in her life (you know how third world countries are - just pamper and spoil their children!)
The Topkapi Palace where Sultans lived for 400 years till 1800 something:
Istanbul is a beautiful city! I could spend the whole 4 months here and still be astounded by its beauty!
(In the middle is the Basillica Cistern)
We visited a famous Baklava parlor (instead of frozen yogurt hang outs they have baklava hang outs...) and I had my first taste. Didn't really know what to expect becuase I had never really seen baklava before -- but let me tell you... HEAVEN in my mouth!!
