Istanbul - just mention the name and a cornucopia of images flood the mind: vast empires, grand palaces and mosques, narrow souks and the Bosphorus. Pria soaks his senses in Turkish history, Ottoman cuisine and local wine before heading to the mountains to refresh and replenish the soul with the good folk of Aydar - a tiny alpine village that could be mistaken for chocolate-box Switzerland except for the huge mosque in the middle of it.
