The Highlight of the Trip. Hands Down.

Filed under: Globetrotting Elititude — Twin C @ 1:25 pm

Today PSB and I were wandering around Topkapi Palace, where the Sultans and their wives and concubines and eunichs and lots of other people lived. There were many exhibit halls featuring ancient cookware, weaponry, treasures, and religious artifacts. We walked past them all, giving everything cursory glances, until we found ourselves in front of. . .

the Rod of Moses.

No shit.

We were not allowed to take pictures in that room, which also featured some bones from John the Baptist and Mohammed’s footprint, but we basked in the glory of its gnarled woodiness for as long as we could. We also elbowed each other in the ribs a few times for good measure.

Home soon!

UPDATE: some people sneakier than I have taken illegal shots in the past - here’s one.
