Azade Hotel (Istanbul) - in Old Town, two blocks from the Blue Mosque
this post is for Mom... check out the rating! and, it's a Best Western (but, clean & modern)!
looking toward the Blue Mosque!
a fountain in a beautiful park separates the Sophia Hagia Mosque & Blue Mosque
inside the Istanbul Archaeological Museum
(near Old Town)
JPE was interested in the Syrian & Hittities
(dating back to the 13th Century).
we had a cup of tea in the courtyard...
among the outdoor artifacts!
weather was pleasant! a bit of humidity!
photos are slow to load! will post the day's highlights!
