Four Days in Istanbul
by Graham Kingston
This article (11,000 words, 40 photographs) presents a day-by-day account of our visit to the old part of the city. We visited the Basilica Cistern, Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace and Harem museums, Chora museum, Grand Bazaar, and a Bosphorus cruise. Two other special events were the Sarnic Hotel Cooking Class and an unforgettable Turkish Bath.
