My favourite city in the whole world .......

Post  Alison on Mon Dec 10, 2007 8:39 am

..... Istanbul!

I've been in love with the city since my first trip there in 1990. The first time I saw the skyline of the european side, I felt that I had a strong connection with the place. Maybe I was a concubine in the Harem in a past life Wink but I had a strong sense of Deja Vu.

I visit on every opportunity that comes up and the last time I was there was in August. Hubby and I took my mum, my sister and her hubby for their 1st trip to Istanbul; they loved it! I did so much walking in those three days, my hips thought they were dislocated! pale

Here are some photos I took in August.


The Eunichs who looked after the ladies of the Harem




The Grand Hall in the Harem
