Turkey Trip - Summer 2014
A collection of photos I took during my August 2014 trip to Turkiye (Ankara and Istanbul).
Aya Sofya Archway - Istanbul
Residence of the Royal Progeny, Topkapi Palace, Istanbul
Name the language. Persian? Arabic? Urdu? Nope, Ottoman. Yes, Ottoman, which is NOT Turkish, but a combination of Turkic, Arabic, and Persian, and spoken primarily as a court language.
Sultan's Bedroom Fountain - Topkapi Palace, Istanbul
Harem Passageway - Topkapi Palace (Istanbul)
Summer Divan on the Bosphorus - Topkapi Palace, Istanbul
A royal bed - Topkapi Palace, Istanbul
Recycled building materials. - Old Fort (Ankara Kalesi)
Kocatepe Mosque - Ankara
This is a stray dog who decided he was going to chaperon us for the night. Came and lay under our table in Istanbul. Never begged, just wanted the occasional head rub.
