Grand Bazaar, Blue Mosque, Last Meal

Monday 16-03-2015 & Tuesday, 17-03-2015. 

Days 208 & 209. 

The Grand Bazaar and the Blue Mosque are two places that everyone says you have to visit when you're in Istanbul. Because we were enjoying a leisurely pace while we were in Istanbul, we waited until our last few days to explore these iconic tourist attractions.

Cats of Istanbul

Cats of Istanbul

There are a Lot of Cats in Istanbul!

I think I've mentioned once or twice that there are a lot of cats in Istanbul. They are quite literally everywhere you turn, and they all seem relatively well-fed (some more than others) and reasonably happy—as happy as a cat can be, anyway. Here's a gallery of some of our favorites.
