Quick post: I wanted to let everyone know that I’ve been in Istanbul for the past two days taking pictures, writing and reading. I plan to visit a few museums tomorrow including the Deniz Müzesi (Naval Museum), Pera Müzesi & Koç Müzesi (which have a number of maps and drawings of Ottoman-era Constantinople).
Also: there is a great article I found that talks about urban planning and the siege of Constantinople. Will write about it tomorrow after visiting Sultan Ahmet/Aya Sofya, two very important religious sites/centers during the Ottoman Empire.
On a sidenote, it’s good to be back in Istanbul–I’m excited to talk about what I’ve been up to in the past two days, I just needed a small break from the computer.
