We finally visited the Blue Mosque today, from which we've been staying across the street and hearing the call to prayer five times a day. I'm going to be posting something more in-depth about the experience of visiting a Muslim country later, but I wanted to quickly put up a link to Mike's site as he wrote another wonderful post (with great photos) about his time in Tajikistan.

Tonight is our last in Istanbul. Whirling dervishes are on the agenda, as is a Turkish bath. But first, a wee siesta.

Tomorrow we're off to the Netherlands. We're both looking forward to the change in weather, and I'm looking forward to hearing Mike spin a new monologue all about Tajikistan while I drink my favorite beer, Hoegaarden.
