More Mosques ~ Istanbul not Portland

The Ortakoy Mosque is always beautiful but it is even more so when it's reflecting the sun. Today we walked here past the Dolmabache Palace, the Four Seasons and the Ciragan Sarayi, another luxury hotel.  It was a grand walk and we were delighted with how low-key the town was later in the afternoon. Sunday photos when it was rainy are up on Flickr. The rest of the ones from today probably won't get there for a few more days. We did catch a bus and took the Funicular to Taksim from Kabatas.


  1. is that really a basketball in the photo? looks like one!

  2. Yes, it's a basketball. The Turks take basketball almost as seriously as soccer. They advanced today in the world basketball event today.
