Tourist stop #1 the Blue Mosque, it's wicked old and pretty impressive. They throw everyone out at prayer time which is announce by a man howling over a loudspeaker. Also visited was the Hagia Sophia and other historical sites that you could look up online if you actually cared.
Lunch was a Margharita pizza, Fanta, Double Espresso, and Baklava. This was all eaten on a patio with Bob Marley playing. On the desert menu was a "water pipe" which is the long way of saying Bong.
They take their smoking very seriously. I saw this guy and asked his permission to take a photo. His only request was that I let him properly arrange his bong first. I can appreciate that he didn't want his bong looking bad in a photo. He was smoking this one on the sidewalk
I spent the rest of the afternoon hanging out down by the water with a bunch of guys who were fishing. There were people selling nuts, fishing tackle, hot tea, corn on the cob, and other things.
Overall, I had a really great time exploring the city. The buildings were beautiful, the weather was perfect, the people nice, and the food was tasty. I don't want to move there, but it was a nice place to visit.
