    This picture was taken inside the Greek Orthodox Patriarchy in Istanbul. It was a day of three visits: The Ahrida Synagogue (15th Century) in the old Jewish quarters of the city, the Patriarchy (16th Century), and the Laleli Mosque (17th Century).

  • Dear Global Education Office:

    Part of my study abroad experience included a week long tour across the country of Turkey. For me, this tour tied up the loose ends of history. In the classroom, we learn about the Greek, Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman Empire, but the opportunity to walk the ruins…
