Pakistan: In Istanbul

Light Within on a day in Istanbul. Filled with a lot of sights and food. “Walking down the tram line from Sultanahmet to Aksaray, there are burial sites on both sides of the street. Caliphs, Pashas and other important dignitaries rest here. Sultans also, but their tombs are within separate building which were of course closed at the time we were there.”
