My name is Vincenzo and today I am in Istanbul. It's a fantastic city and there are wonderful churches everywhere. Yesterday I went to a Turkish restaurant for dinner. I really enjoyed the food but it was a bit strange for me. Yesterday I visited the most important things in the city. I went to Hagia Sophia, an amazing church built by the emperor Giustiniano, to the Blue Mosque, and to the palace of the sultan. Tomorrow I'm going to visit the Great Bazaar of the spices and the Black Sea.
I love this city for its great history: it was the capital of the last Roman empire, of the Byzantine empire, and of the Turkish empire, but the language is very difficult and the culture is very different.
