One Day in Istanbul

On our way back to Lyon from the Nesin math village, we stopped for one night in Istanbul. My husband had many Turkish office-mates during his time at Ohio State, and one of them had since moved back to Istanbul before our trip. When he heard that we were coming to Turkey, he insisted that we come visit. He and his wife met us at the entrance to Hagia Sophia and gave us a whirlwind tour of the city. I’m completely enamored by it. I’ll be back one day.

Highlights of the day: Afternoon Turkish tea looking over the river, the amazingly beautiful mosques we went into each time there was a call to prayer, and desserts plus more tea at nightfall in a local restaurant that opened up onto a view of the city while the moon rose.
