Is-tin-poli means To the city, in Greek. It was The City, the largest and most cosmopolitan city in the known world; first as Greek Byzantium, then as Roman Constantinople and finally as Islamic Istanbul. 
We arrived weary as can be last night but after a proper sleep - lying down in a bed (as opposed to "sleeping" in airplane seats) we were ready to explore. Here is a small selection of what I saw today. As a lover of pattern, I was in heaven!  I even managed to find a vegetarian buffet lunch for the equivalent of about $3!!! The weather is warm, our apartment is lovely and life is good!
