Next up we visited Hagia Sofia, a beautiful and amazing temple. Built in the sixth century it an architectural wonder, and the beautiful decorations are amazing, so much opulence and ancient beauty in one place.
Lunch was at the Pudding Shop, where kebabs were the order of the day. I was introduced to the owner of the restaurant and when he found out I was a kiwi he came back with a flyer the shop had produced to commemorate the 97th anniversary of ANZAC day.
To finish today's tour we visited the Blue Mosque where we saw the exquisite porcelain tiles that decorate the walls in lovely shades of Turquoise and Blue, hence the name of the mosque.
Tonight dinner is at a cultural show with folk dancing and belly dancing, should be interesting.
