Huliganov’s Turkish Experience #9 – Architectural Turkish Delights!

Original playout date: 17 February 2008
Duration: 16:39

I remember this day in January 2016 as the first time I had walked a full 16 km since my youth. This corresponds o an early point in my now 11 year attempt to lose weight and gain strength in walking, which has been an up and down journey, but which has probably enabled me to live this long, as I was not in a good state before, unable to walk many kilometres, even just a few months prior to this.

Here are some of the lovey things I saw in the earlier part of that day after the church visit I had in the morning.

Huliganov senses here in Constatinople a certain part of the Russian soul, you can find it here. Huliganov speaks to this in a way which you will hopefully understand.
I would really like it oof the viewership of this film would grow as there have been only 137 views in ten years while in fact it is one of my best ones, with some quite insightful remarks, some good shots, quite a lot of beauty and atmosphere and I think my fans would really enjoy it. By the way, the cross over Ayasofya really happened, no photomontage. The only thing “fake” in this video is the use of Armenian music, but it does match nicely.

Quote of the clip: “These are the sultans of swing”.
