Parked my bike outside the hotel and went for a walk.. Saw the train and hopped on..
Got off at the Sultanhamet station as i saw the Blue Mosque from the train..
why a picture with him??
Because while i was standing next to his stall about to ask for a glass of pomegranate juice, a couple suddenly jumped in so i let them go first.. they get their juice then they ask how much it was and the guy said 4 TL (Turkish Lira).. while he gave the couple change i dont know why but i was staring at him with a smile and he looked at me, smiled and gave me a guilty-ish look.. the couple walked away and he whispered, they look rich so 4 Lira for them, you pay 3 Lira.. hahahaha.. too good
The Imaam of the famous Blue Mosque..
i told him "im riding my motorcycle from San Francisco California to Pakistan" he looked at me with a confused face then said "MashAllah" hahaha
The architecture was just magnificent.. Camera just dosnt do justice to the beauty..
Turkish tea and the Blue Mosque
This kid was sitting like this in the cold.. i sat next to him and said, "You should start going to school."
he replied with perfect English, "Its night time right now."
i bought some tissue packs from him and went off..
a very cool hookah lounge
Vulcan.. cool guy at the hotel i stayed at in Istanbul... he translated all the news on tv for me.. kept making me drink tea because i kept coughing and blowing my nose.. we exchanged emails.. i asked him if he has facebook and he pointed at the ring he had on his hand and said not any more.. poor guy got married and had to delete his facebook.. hahahahaha
