Seeing Istanbul

Another long day today, and it was freezing cold. After waking up semi-late, we headed out to see all the sights we hadn't seen on the 6th, including the Sultan's Palace, the Archeological Museum, and the Cisterns.

The Cistern is actually quite creepy, if you think about it. It's gloomy, wet, and there's fish in the water (the water is lit with red light, making the fish look quite icky).

The Archeological Museum was interesting— we went through it quickly whenever there was pottery, as we've seen enough pottery in Greece and Italy to last us a lifetime.

And, the Palace was amazing. I love the tiles on the roofs and inside and all over the place.

When we reached the hotel again, Ileana and Ioan watched Charade (Cary Grant, Audrey Hepburn), while I sat in the background and laughed whenever I heard the beginnings of the jokes.
