i loved istanbul, though the last time i was there was about 12 years ago... so maybe my perspective is skewed by virtue of having been much shorter and more impressionable. anyway, i could see why so many people fought over the city. what did you think of it? what did you see?

and ramadan kareem...

Istanbul was fantastic; certainly one the best cities I have ever visited. Now I can appreciate why it is such an important city, maybe even those who are not Turkish. It has this "romantic" (think German) quality. No wonder the Ottomans ruled Islam for as long as they did.

I am in the middle of typing up what I saw. Insha'Allah I'll post it in the coming days.

salaam `alaykum
