..... i have been in istanbul for a week. and i had such a good time. met so much of my turkish side of the family. ate so much good food. the reason we went to istanbul was to celebrate my mothers 50th birthday. just had to take pictures of the things i ate. it was so well layed out on the plates. and i love turkish tea, drank it with almost every meal.
our hotel was on sultan ahmed just next to aya sofia. i didn't go in there is time, but if your ever in istanbul you should go in, it's a beutiful old mosque.
