We started the Guided Tour Istanbul from Hippodrome. Again it’s Friday and we couldn’t go into Sultan Ahmet Mosque (Blue Mosque). We talked a little bit outside about Blue Mosque – how beautiful it is inside, how magnificent and blue it is as well. The blue colour comes from the Iznik tiles. I hope they will come back to see it with their families.

Guided tour Istanbul – Roman Hippodrome and tulipsToday a nice surprise was waiting for us in Roman Hippodrome. It was the first tulips of 2016. They are so welcome. They are like summer romance for us. Maximum we see them 2 months and the rest of the 10 months we miss them.
After Roman Hippodrome, we visited Hagia Sophia. That pretty ‘lady’ is more than 1500 years old and still no other cathedral has been built as quickly as Hagia Sophia. Its mosaics and calligraphy are from two different religions but stay so peacefully together.
