Where East Meets West

There is no shortage of Turkish Delight in Istanbul
Fishermen on the Galata Bridge. Europe at one end of the bridge, Asia at the other.
Smoking a nargile The Blue Mosque from the hotel at night
Sailing on the Bosphorus
The Aya Sofya, quite possibly one of the most impressive buildings I have ever entered
Now I know why they call it the Blue Mosque...
The back streets of the Western district where the women sit on their doorsteps to peel their vegetables
What a way to make a living!
The eerie but atmospheric Basilica Cistern

A whirling dervish in full spin
More than enough to smell and taste down at the spice bazaar
