Brianna and Chad attened a full day of classes during their first day in Turkey. Their instructor, Murat, briefly lectured on the background of each of the historic sites and then allowed them time to explored for themselves. Today’s class included the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, the Byzantine Hippodrome, Topkapi Palace, the Turkish Military Museum and Taksim Square. Hope they get some rest. Class resumes again tomorrow at 9:00.
