Well, we have made it! We are staying close to the Blue Mosque and the Hagia Sophia. We arrived in the afternoon, strolled around the Arasta Bazaar, ate some potato eggplant thing, tasted apple tea, and saw a kitty eating the largest worm I have ever seen (a monster from the depths of the earth?).
Tomorrow we hope to visit the railway museum and/or the Hagia Sophia.
If any of our fans have been to Istanbul, let us know what type of street food you enjoyed.
