Above is the Hagia Sophia, seen beyond the roof of the Museum of Turkish and Islamic Arts.
Another view of the mosque, above. I was on the rooftop terrace of the Hotel Ibrahim Pasha, which is excellent in every way (Thanks to CNN Travel for the tip.).
More later. . . . We arrived home about 2:00 a.m. this morning.
. . .tonight again the fragrant sky
etches luminous travel
with beads from tree to tree
above this terra cotta,
above us as we sleep.
