Ishtar Gate Again

I got up early, before breakfast and went out to do some early morning filming of the Blue Mosque. After breakfast the three of us went to the Hagia Sophia where we spent more than two hours wandering about, including taking turns to go up the high balconies while the other person waited with Christl on the ground floor.

After lunch of something like pita bread wraps with chips we went to the Archaeological museum. Amongst other things I saw more of the parts of the Ishtar Gate. Other parts of which I had seen in Berlin, Vienna and the Louvre.
Finally for the day we managed to get Christl in her wheel chair down into the cistern.
