Istanbul: Blue Mosque, Topkapi, Hagia Sophia


Spent the whole day in Istanbul and saw all the standard sites: Blue Mosque, Topkapi, Hagia Sophia, and the Grand Bazaar. When we visited in 2004, the interior of Hagia Sophia was filled with scaffolding, but it had been removed recently. (Apparently the work had been completed for some time, but it took a couple years to get the money to pay for the removal!) It's a big, impressive space... Not much else to add, so HERE are the pics.
