We did a lot of touring today. The old city is full of sites to see and all of them are in walking distance of each other. We went to the Blue Mosque, Haggai Sophia, a 6th century cistern built by the Romans, a sultan’s palace and had lunch on our own.

The students were given a lunch allowance and told when to be back at the park. It’s fun for them to get to do some exploring and dealing with the local people.

We will have church tonight in the cistern of the hotel.

When we are touring, we are in the midst of hundreds of other tourists. I have been surprised by how many tourists there are.

Here are a few pictures from today.
