We were delighted when our niece, Catherine, and her husband, Michael, came to stay with us in Istanbul, even if for a very short time. Cath had visited Istanbul before, but everything was new to Mikey, so we decided to give him a brief overview of all the delights this city has to offer.
Our first stop was the Grand Bazaar...
...before going up onto the roof of the Buyuk Valide Han.

Hmm... so many Turkish Delights to choose from in the Spice Market

There's a great view down the Bosphorus, from the Topkapi Palace.
We imagined what it must be like, living on the edge of the Bosphorus
