Istanbul Turkey November 2004

It's like heaven arriving the St. Sophia museum, like it must have been in the Byzantium and Ottoman periods as a Church and Mosque.


Vikings went east and has also been to Miklagard (The Great city).  It was very strange for a Norwegian to see the Viking "Runic" grafiti in stone .  The Heathens meet the Christianity of the Roman empire.
