  1. I don’t know that I’d want that face watching me at night. Actually, I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t. I’m easily spooked.

    And the artist you took a photo of? Until I read you’re explanation, I thought she had on a really bizarre hat.

    I believe that I would find a towel or a sheet and figure out a way to cover that bizarre woman looking over the bed and back. Yikes! I am interested in hearing about the differences between the two sides of the city. I had a friend who stayed in Istanbul for quite a while who told me about that, and it sounded almost like two cities….say Mpls/St. Paul, Duluth/Superior, or Fargo/Moorhead.

  3. That bed would freak me out–between the close walls and the picture.
    Who’s the hot artist? My husband would be the guy checking his phone, waiting for me to be done looking around so we could get moving. *sigh*

    i am curious about the history of chora church. you said it was first a greek church and later a mosque. did it at some point revert to being a church and THEN the mosiacs were added or were they original to the structure. i only ask because of the islamic proscription on human images inside a mosque and to think the mosaics of christ were preserved while it was a mosque is intriguing to me.

    Okay. That person and its reflection watching while I sleep? Nope. Can’t do it. Would find a sheet or towel to cover it somehow. However – must have evil-eye jangly things! Would make excellent earrings!
