When I queued to see the Basilica Cistern I could be forgiven for thinking I was queuing to see Daniel Craig in tuxedo as the wait was longish but to be fair not as long as Topkali and Hagia Sofia. Once in we descended some dark steps and found this underground cistern illuminated and the home to some very large fish. An unusual site but well worth the visit.
Can’t remember which Bond movie Daniel visited Istanbul for but wishful thinking on my part that I would bump into him in this dark spot! Keep dreaming Grey Traveller !
