"Right now, we are going for a ferry ride on the Bosphorus River (or Bosphorus Strait) in Istanbul, Turkey.  There are two bridges that currently cross the Bosphorus.  The name of this bridge is the First Bosphorus Bridge.  This bridge connects the continent of Asia to the continent of Europe."

"Look Harry, another palace!  It's Dolmabache Palace!  This palace, which is now a museum, is located on the bank of the Bosphorus.  How beautiful!"

"Harry, the Blue Mosque got its name because of the blue tiles on the inside of the walls.  The Blue Mosque is different than most mosques because it has six minarets.  Minarets are tall, slender towers with balcones from which people are called to prayer several times a day."

Join sibling Chihuahuas Bella and Harry as they travel to Istanbul with their family and cruise the Bosphorus River, visit the Blue Mosque, the Grand Bazaar and Topkapi Palace. Along the way, local cuisine (such as menemen) is introduced to the reader.
