Turkey Blue Mosque

[Late post]: As you know, I enjoyed a one-week sojourn in Istanbul last January and I got to see the infamous and historical Blue Mosque aka Sultan Ahmed (Sultanahmet) Mosque almost daily because I stayed in a hotel which is just a 5-minute walk from it.

Here's my little soujourn to the Blue Mosque:
