Oh dear. I assumed this place had been visited by many TP-ers so I used photos which weren't so obvious. Perhaps I was wrong. If it hasn't, it should be: there's a huge amount to see and do.

I have amazingly similar photos to 2 of the last 3. This looks like Istanbul.....

Take me back to Constantinople
No, you can't go back to Constantinople
Now it's Istanbul, not Constantinople
Why did Constantinople get the works?
That's nobody's business but the Turks'

Istanbul!!
Istanbul!!

> Istanbul!! Istanbul!!<

Yes!!! Yes!!!

  • There's a large Roma community near Suleymaniye mosque so I thought I'd add those photos to throw people off the scent a bit.
  • The excavated ruins are next to Hagia Irene church in the grounds of Topkapi. That's where I saw the military chaps: they'd been on a pre-opening-time palace visit.
  • The corridor leads to Topkapi Harem, where the tiling photo comes from, and the walls and towers are bits of the Byzantine Walls.
  • According to googlemaps the railway bridge has been repaired since I last visited, which is probably just as well!

Somewhere in the UK?

It is not the UK.

Better food.

That leaves about 200+ countries as a possibility...

From what I hear the UK has become a bit of a foodie paradise so it can't be too bad

So are we somewhere in the Caribbean?

We are not in the sunny Caribbean...I wish I was!
