On my return flight to Nepal I had a 20 hour layover in Istanbul. Had the e-visa ready and stayed with some travel mates from Nepal in a cute hotel. During my time here I was able to go into the Blue Mosque. Something that I've always wanted to see. Although the main dome is under renovation the visit was truly worth it. If you visit and it's still under renovation, please take the time to read about the history of the mosque and the renovation efforts. It's very interesting. The rest of my time was spent eating and sightseeing the morning of return departure to the US. Enjoy!
