- the Blue Mosque, and the Hagia Sophia
I am very interested in this book because I've visited both the Blue Mosque and the Hagia Sophia. I would really like to read this book to learn more from a more local perspective. Thank you!Image

I'm glad to hear that from you. You could identify the differences and similarities of both mosques during the early 60's and during your visit. I'll be glad to hear your comments after reading the book. Thank you...

Hi, Dolor. Istanbul is one of my dream destinations. I will happily join Agnes, Agee and Yusuf in roaming the streets in search for the "spicy" truth.

I recall that Aladdin was also stealing bread and fruit. Was the setting also Istanbul?

We miss you at the games, kabayan!

Wow, it's nice to hear that from you!

I'm sorry to tell you that the persons you mentioned can't join with you this time. The journey was in early 60's. I don't know if grandma Agee is still alive and if Yusuf and Agnes are still up for a tour.

Alladin's setting is also in the Middle East.

Did you miss me in the forum? Oh, sorry for that... I'm very busy these days. Maybe next time I'll join again. It's nice to know I got friends who miss me.
