What we wanted to go and see was Hagia Sophia. It is a former Christian patriarchal  basilica, later an imperial mosque, and now a museum (Ayasofya Müzesi). When Ottoman Empire took over the Constantinople and when they made it into a mosque, they tried to cover up much of Christian heritage. Yet, much of ancient arts are still visible in some ways.

We walked to the famous Grand Bazaar. While walking around, we got hungry looked for a good place to ea.

We found this restaurant through Trip Advisor, Donerci Sahin Usta, which had a very good rating. When we got there, it was literally a hole in a wall but there was a line of people waiting for their beef doner s-20150714_133605wrapped with yummy wrap.

It was a great find.

We were tried and decided to take a nap and come out in the evening….
