Turkish Delights

Scenes from a wonderful week in one of the world’s greatest cities–and one that will be increasingly more important as the bridge across cultures it has always been.

Here are some of the places I saw (with links to Wikipedia articles):


Istiklal Avenue

Topkapi Palace

The Harem

The Golden Horn

The Bosporus

The Sea of Marmara

Hagia Sophia

The Blue Mosque

The Hippodrome (Sultanahmet)

The Grand Bazaar

The Spice Bazaar

The Theodosian Walls

Saint Saviour in Chora

And now–the pics!
