We were not able to post the pictures we took of Istanbul while we were there. We only had the old netbook which operates on some ancient version of Linux which will not work properly with anything other than ancient versions of Firefox and Open Office. Uploading pictures was never going to happen. Especially as we did not take the lead that connects the camera to the usb port.
So here, now, some pictures of a mostly wet Istanbul. We’re not sure how clear it is but the one of the Blue Mosque in the day time was taken whilst it was actually snowing.
