We've had three tries at seeing the inside of the Blue Mosque -- each time it has been closed for prayer -- but today was going to be our lucky day!
When you enter the mosque you must cover your head if you are a woman, and you must also make sure your shoulders and legs are covered, even if you are a man. They hand out coveralls to tourists who don't comply. Julia had a fabulous green one that looked like a hospital gown. My pants and shirt were considered to be OK, so all I had to do was wear a scarf on my head.
It's Ramadhan and everyone is at the Blue Mosque
