Istanbul day 2

We all went by taxi to the Chora church which was built in 1077-1081, the mosaics and frescos were carried out 1315-1321 and is now a museum. The mosaics are of the finest. After the visit we took a taxi to the house of Pierre Loti, an eccentric French writer who owned a house in Istanbul around 1900. It’s located on the Golden Horn and the view is beautiful. A lovely walk down to the water led through an interesting old cemetery. Gaby, Philippe and I returned to the city centre by boat.

    Nous espérons qu'Arlette se remet rapidement.
    L'Empire byzantin était miné par les complots, les coups d'Etat, les assassinats, la débauche, les mutilations, la corruption, les intrigues d'impératrices, de concubines et d'ecclésiastiques. Il a tout de même duré 1.123 ans et 18 jours.
    Aujourd'hui: lire Orhan Pamuk.
