Checking Out the Sights – WYC Day 11

August 16, 2010 lakshmi - No Comments

By Monday morning all 10 of us arrived back in Istanbul from various locations around Turkey.  We were exhausted, (most of us having taken overnight buses) but glad to be back at the campus and ready to get back to work.  After a short rest in the morning it was time to see the city.  We went to the city center with all 1500 participants and spent the rest of the day checking out the sights.  We saw Aaya Sophia (the largest structure area wise in the world), the Blue Mosque, and a museum which had the staff of Moses, Mohammed’s footprint, beard, and sword.
