Hiya people!! Let me confess that today’s post is purely selfish. I am on my lunch break and can’t stop obsessing about the results of Nigeria’s elections. Been going around asking my colleagues, “any news? any news?” since 11a.m. when the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) started to announce. So in order to stop my heart from racing and to give myself peace of mind, I decided to go down memory lane and re-live my trip to Turkey by scrolling through photos on my phone.
Enjoy them with me. And may God bless Nigeria and whatever part of the world you are reading from. May more love permeate our lives…
Hagia Sophia, is considered the epitome of Byzantine architecture and is said to have “changed the history of architecture.” Built as a church in 360, it was converted to a mosque in 1453 and remained so until 1931, when it was turned into a museum. It was designed by the Greek scientists Isidore of Miletus, a physicist, and Anthemius of Tralles, a mathematician. It was the largest cathedral in the world for almost a thousand years and it was so was so richly and artistically decorated that Justinian (who commissioned the structure above), is said to have proclaimed, “Solomon, I have outdone thee!” (source http://www.Globotreks.com)
Anyhow, virtual voyage done! Time to get back to work. And please “any news?”
