sultanahmet 1500x1125

Sultanahmet, the Old City, the Historic Peninsula, etc., as seen while traveling from the Asian side of Istanbul to the European side on the vapur (ferry). On the left, the Sultanahmet Camii (aka the Blue Mosque); on the right, the Aya Sofya (aka the Hagia Sophia). I went over to Mecidiyeköy this evening. Istanbul makes New York City look like Dubuque, in terms of people and traffic. No offense to Dubuque, I happen to like it, too.
