Hagia Sofia in Istanbul

The Hagia Sofia is undoubtedly an awe-inspiring monument but, as with many places no longer in use, they feel a little like a mausoleum. That triggers in me the need to find everyday traces of life, left-overs of generations that came before me, when such places were still alive. So I end up being more touched by the stone floor so worn away it looks as smooth as velvet; or by the messages carved into the marble, than by the amazing mosaic.
