Hippodrome and the Blue MosqueOctober 19 in Turkey ⋅ ⛅ 61 °F
Our first two stops of the day. We were fortunate that we were able to actually enter the mosque. Unfortunately the ceilings are covered as they seek to renovate but was still nice to be allowed entrance ( with shoes off).
A bit foggy this early in the A.M. so a bit difficult for pics outside. Left the mosque at 9:30 and are headed towards Gallipoli
