Hi

Arrived in Istanbul at 8am and took a cab to Neve Shalom Synagogue to attend the service. Security was very heavy.

Sephardic service.

The saw the other Ashkenazi synagogue nearby from the outside.

Had another delicious fish roll, walked through the Spice market again and the busy narrow streets to the amazing Grand Bazaar.

Waited in line for over an hour to get tickets for the Topkapi Palace where the Harem was the highlight for me.

Flew to London at 5:30pm
