ISTANBUL NOT CONSTANTINOPLE
Istanbul was not what I expected. I'm not sure what my expectation was, but it was not what I got. I was pleasantly surprised. It is a very modern European city and very clean and beautiful. The tour I took was jam packed with sites to see and very little time at those sites, plus a visit to the Grand Bazaar, a rug demo and lunch. Please watch the video. It has pictures of places I didn't visit and shows the beauty of Istanbul.
Photo ops on our way to our first stop.
