The Blue Mosque by Michael Davies

The Blue Mosque

This is from the first time I had travelled abroad alone. I had fell in love with a girl from Istanbul and was visiting for the weekend. I took a hop on hop off city tour to kill time whilst she was at work and found myself at the Blue Mosque at the call to prayer on a Friday. I was 20 years of age and although it didn't work out with the girl the mix of sound colour and emotion made for one of the most magical moments of my life.
