Busy Istanbul, Turkey Photos

The blue mosque, with its 20 loudspeakers up each minaret to wake us up at 5am

Being teased by the Turkish ice cream seller. The ice cream is kind of chewy, and they ply it about with a stick and then serve it... well, if you can grab the cone!

Al chased after this guy with his shoe brush he dropped. He insisted on cleaning our shoes to say thanks, then told us about his sick boy in hospital (really?!) so of course we gave him some money. Good ploy.

The busy pedestrianised main shopping street in Istanbul. We were happy watching the carnage on a balcony with a beer.
