Today you could call us full time tourists. We saw many interesting historical sights in the old town of Istanbul. The pictures below describe the day:
There were many security guards around town with machine guns.
The Grand Bazaar, an ancient indoor shopping mall from the 1400s, was overwhelmingly huge and filled with artifacts and some tourist junk.
Carpet sellers are ubiquitous. They are very persistent in their attempt to sell beautiful, ancient carpets.
