of course, there are many things in this city that I cannot,
and shall not,

I’m really staying on the western side of the Bosporus, as well.
I visited more places, in the driving rain, wandering in the glooming darkness.

Topkapi Sarayi, in the wintry dark; the Blue Mosque, more Han — the burrowing rabbitways of warehouses and bazaars, the Roman cisterns…pillars standing below ground in the
theatrically illuminated undercarriage of the city.

While I’ve got maps, I still find that knowing “generally” where I’m headed is more interesting, than trying to trace routes, from A – B.

There is really one thing that I did this morning.

At one am, The Blue Mosque, beneath the full moon…

Night Temple
