finding out why constantinople got the works

a range of scales

Posted in istanbul by jlm2dy on January 13, 2011

from miniaturk, where everything is 1/25 the original size
to eyup, where the graveyards are 1000% better on the scale of things that are awesome
to the new mosque, where iznik tiles surpass the suleymaniye mosque by a trillion

    i LOVE that you are sublimely happy and know you and your mom and dina are having adventures and fun galore.
    where/what the heck is the new mosque? I cannot imagine iznik tiles being any more glorious than in Topkapi…but this looks magnificent. are they all new tiles too? makes me think i better book a flight and get right there!

    love, karin
