view of the koca han, the final stop of the silk road (and where i spent my life savings in scarves)

osman gazi türbe, with mother of pearl and velvet (and decay)

karagöz müze, home of shadow puppets. despite the cancelled show, we both convinced them to perform for us, and went backstage to operate the puppets for ourselves. türkçe dil dersler, teşekkür ederim! (thank you turkish classes!)

ulu camii, fountain within the body of the mosque (also, this mosque has 20 domes!!!)

yeşil türbe, stalactite tile work (even though yeşil means green, this is pretty blue and yellow)

a backstage tour of yeşil camii thanks to the manager of tile restoration (inside the lodge for the dervishes)
