Sophia Hagia and the Blue Mosque

10 Oct

The Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque were on our agenda for our first day in Turkey.  It is difficult to imagine that the Hagia Sophia was built in 537 A.D.  That’s when the Danes were up here still living as Vikings.  So incredibly that the Middle East has such a history of civilizations, but today they are not the leading region in the world.

Inside the Hagia Sophia.  Magnificent!

Not so blue anymore! But all the white was once painted blue.

Jakob sure knows how to pick a restaurant!
