All that glitters is not gold.

The Topkapi Palace is billed as one of the main attractions of Istanbul.  It has so much going for it, but still failed to deliver us much wow.  Dank apartments with tired display cabinets.  Gold paint instead of gilding. Neglected gardens.  What a shame.  We did however marvel at the beautiful tiles which still shone despite their surrounds.

Left over bits.  Can we have them?

Lets get out of here.
