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).
