We visited the Museum of Modern Art with a friend. It was interesting to read about the development of modern Turkish art and how politics and art can be so interconnected. For me, not being the most sophisticated critic of art, reading about the history and politics aspect is more enjoyable than actually looking at the paintings.
On our walk back home from the museum I just had to stop and take pictures of some of the beautiful mosques and other buildings we passed. And it was a beautiful autumnal afternoon, with lovely light and clouds, and the sun low in the sky. The mosques were of a very interesting architectural style. Rococo? I'm not sure. Pretty cool though.
