School outing

Turkish schoolchildren have an outing to the Museum of Turkish and Islamic Art in Sultanahmet. This museum has an incredible array of very old (15th century onwards) and astonishingly large carpets, not just Turkish but Persian too. Once the palace of Rustem Pasha, Suleiman the Magnificent's Grand Vizier, it has nice views onto the Hippodrome and Blue Mosque too.
