Tanzania 2015 Trip

Istanbul

Mari Beth Poor

As I told you yesterday, we detoured and ended up having a day to view the classic sites in Istanbul. We visited the Hippodrome which was a stadium for horse racing, the Blue Mosque (pictured below), the Hagia Sophia (which was a church, then a mosque and now a museum and is said to have "changed the history of architecture- pictured below), and the Grand Bazzarre where I will say there was LOTS of shopping and too LITTLE time! :) We have been grateful for a good night's rest and an impromptu adventure, but we are very ready to get to Tanzania! We leave tonight at 7:30pm (prayers appreciated for no delays) and will be to Tanzania by 2:30AM. Everyone is doing great! See ya in Tanzania.

 Cathey outside the Blue Mosque- we had to wear head coverings inside.
