Alas, Poor Sinan. I knew him well.

Meanwhile, back in Istanbul…

In an odd piece of news today (courtesy of the BBC), the Turkish Government is on the lookout for the skull of the great architect, Mimar Sinan. All these years, I never knew that he had been headless since 1935.  Here’s hoping they recover it and return it to his türbe near the Süleymaniye.
