Blue Mosque

After a brief rest this afternoon we walked to the Blue Mosque – what an amazing sight! One can’t help but be impressed with its size and beauty.

On the way to the Blue Mosque we took time to listen to a pop group performing in the park area. They are probably famous but not being up with that part of culture I couldn’t confirm that – some-one might be able to tell from the photo.

The fourth picture was taken from a window in our pension – a lot takes place in the street below. It’s 11 pm and the stall holders are still open for business. We haven’t seen them doing much business but perhaps they had a ‘rush’ while we were out. They have a cat to keep themselves and the tourists amused and fill in the rest of the time smoking and drinking apple tea.
