And right now we are in Old Town ak8 what used to be Constantinople on the hill constable just kind of like going up.

And sugar with sometimes the addition of nuts. And fruits this from onion without sugar look at this Turkish Delight guys next stop was to the mosque of sultan out met or more popularly known as the blue mosque due to the many blue tiles both outside. And in okay guys.
So we are now inside of the blue reason we have field cover-ups because it actually is a practicing law across from the Blue Mosque is the highest Sophia one of the most iconic. And historic buildings in the world remember the Blue Mosque which we just finished visiting was only 400 years old hi Sofia is actually 1500 years old at was built originally as a Christian Orthodox Church by the Romans. And then was later converted into a mosque when the Ottoman came in to act if you look behind me there are actually a bunch of restoration work going on right now, but there are in the process of uncovering a bunch of the mural that were originally covered up when that conversion.
I happened next was a very historical lunch as we’ve done at a traditional Ottoman cuisine restaurant where all the items on the menu were historically accurate meals that they ate back in the 13th. And 14th century followed by a traditional Turkish kebab or Turkish bath okay. So, this is the before of us before we go into the chicken body I’m.
So ready for the fight basically there’s a group us in a marble room. And we were washed. And soaked.
