Turkey: Istanbul

This is Rachelle, my roommate. Rachelle has one of the best laughs I’ve ever heard, it’s one of those laughs that make something that seemed like a big deal a few minutes before not seem like a big anymore. She’s so great.

We took this picture right on the edge of the Grand Bazaar. The Grand Bazaar took me back to my days of street market shopping in China. The foods and the people looked a little different though…

Dates and dried fruit

I love the Blue Mosque too. It is called the Blue Mosque because it has over 20,000 blue tiles on the inside of it. It is also really beautiful but very crowded with people.
The ceiling domes
