I’m currently reading the third book of the Naomi Novik Temeraire series. A lot of the book takes place in Istanbul, which has been a little brain breaking for me because I’ve been to so many of the places that she’s describing, and she does a really good job of setting the atmosphere in just a few words. The one that REALLY got me, though, was today I read a section where Laurence and Tharkay get chased by some guards and end up in a really creepy underwater vault…yeah, I’ve been there too! It’s a Roman cistern and it’s now open to the public as a tourist attraction, and it’s called the Yerebatan Saray Cistern. Her description was so spot on that there wasn’t a doubt in my mind that this is what she was referring to. Anyway, I thought the internets might like to see some of my pictures of the cistern - better lit now than in the early 19th century. There are still blind fish in the water, though, and there’s still a really creepy Medusa head off in one little section off the main area which would still make an excellent hiding place if one were being pursued by guards…

(when the cistern was first built, those doing the construction cannibalized existing buildings in order to get the stones for the pillars, so they’re a very strong motley assortment of whatever was lying around…including some decorative pieces like the medusa head…)

it is my greatest wish to time travel to the future and watch historically inaccurate period dramas about the early 2000s
