I didn't write much in my journal but sketched some items of interest. We visited the Topkapi Palace from about 10:00 till 17:50.

In the Topkapi museum I saw the staff of Moses, the sword of David, the turban of Joseph, the cooking pot of Abraham and 8 hairs of the beard of the prophet (in six separate reliquaries).
Walking back we stopped at a sweet food shop where we shared a main meal of aubergine and chicken with a cheese topping. There were three kofte with potato. Then Uschi got what we really came into the shop to get. A serve of nuts in nests, also a few slices of something like pistachio kataifi log (Burma Kadia?) with four versions of turkish delight.
