Blogging in Istanbul
Just spent a long weekend in Istanbul, speaking at a conference on "Freedom and Prejudice" and seeing the sights of this fascinating city.
The Blue Mosque is absolutely stunning, during the day and especially lit up at night. The hundreds of other mosques and bazaars and the setting on the Bosphorus make for a mind-boggling cityscape. But we also had a great time trying out the various bars and restaurants, and almost made it through until dawn a couple of times :) Highly recommended!
