Orient Express

Station interesting, not a modern one, the station is a small museum 'Orient Express'. We went to Topkapi Palace Park, but decided it still did not have time to work around it to walk on the boat, put off the next day. We got to the Aya Sophia – the former patriarch of the Orthodox Cathedral, which was then rebuilt in the mosque. Now it has long been a museum. The cathedral is striking in size and mosaics.

We sat in the square between the cathedral and the Blue Mosque. Danone wanted to know more. Very nice, all in color. Walked around the Blue Mosque, looked at the schedule. Not at any time it can just enter. Hike into the postponed later.

Even a book has read in educational purposes. In the evening still had time to go to the Basilica Cistern. It seems that the time has already been closed, but it turned out that tickets are still selling. There is unusual. Cool and damp, but as a fairy. We got to the room, fell to sleep. I wanted to sit on the balcony, view of the Bosphorus, it was cold. They say, next to Taksim Square, live bad, very noisy, impossible to sleep. Nothing that I can not remember, the truth may be here just a window overlooking the Bosphorus, helped. That is such a rich day turned out. Myself wondering how so much time to. Although not quiet the next day would call …
