Bonnie - April 18, 2019

In my chance instead of Topkapı we visited Chora Museum. Because yesterday we were there. Chora as i investige on web means "out of the city". You see a simle church but when you enter the museum mosaics are unbelievable.

We have met a talented guide. He was knowing a lot of things. He showed also some part of serials which we can see Chora Museum on mobile phone.

The best point that i will remember next to traditional visiting places, Caferaga Madrasah. There are nice workshops, daily exibitons and you can get nice souvenirs.
