Blue mosque, Istanbul-I am all about conveying positivity with traveling experiences and while Istanbul generally speaking is secular I did not have a good one at the Blue mosque. I had people harassing me and more so them trying to give the girl I was with a hard time whistling at her and saying shit under their breath from the get go. I had somebody in the mosque as I was trying to respect their customs tell me that my tattooed arms were disrespectful in English. My response was 'well if you see it that way I don't know what to tell you'. I covered my heart with my hand which is supposed to convey best wishes and was left alone after that. The biggest thing that struck me is that the women must worship in cages in the back of the mosque.
