Day 2 was the day for history. Walk along the Hippodrome, once used for chariot racing. We headed in morning to the Blue Mosque, as it closes for salah time, it is best advised to start before the daytime prayers. Inside the mosque females have to cover their head and all should be in conservative clothing. This is applicable for Turkey as I saw everybody fashionably dressed but no skin show at all.
