Not surprisingly, you’ll see mosques everywhere while you travel in Turkey. And, if you can’t see them, you will hear the calls to prayer throughout the day. It’s really not all that different than the prolific nature of churches in South America. You sort of become immune to it all. But, one night while out for dinner in the very smart Beşiktaş neighborhood, we couldn’t help but notice this mosque with its bright, luminescent colors. Of course, the Bosphorus Bridge lit up in purple only added to the dramatic effect. I loved hanging out here and love this photo so it was easy to pick it for this week’s Suh-Weet shot!
