On my walk to find the Rustem Pasa Mosque I arrived at a place clearly marked on my map as Rustem Pasa Mosque. But first of all it was several blocks south of the Spice Market, and secondly it was completely shrouded in blue plastic, and completely under reconstruction. But where was I?

It was closed, clearly marked off limits. I am 98% sure that it was my few Turkish words that got me in there. My monologue to the guard went as follows: "Hello, excuse me, please (pointing to my map), thank you!".

He chuckled, shook his head, and let me in and apparently told a woman who was attached to the project to walk me around...but I still couldn't figure out where I was!
