The Great City Miklagard to Vikings, but whether called Miklagard, Byzantium, Constantinople, Stamboul, or Istanbul, the city of 17 million is a mind-numbing kaleidoscope of colors, history, architecture, religion, flowers, products, salesmen, buses, stone, streets, ancient walls, waterways, and people. Sunrise over the Bosporus, golden-sandwiched glass tile mosaics, colored lamps and scarves and cloth and carpets and spices in the market make up the pieces of color In the sight.
