Two questions about Istanbul -- getting there and once we're there.
We have a connecting flight in Paris, from Detroit to Istanbul. One hour and 50 minutes at Charles de Gaulle. Does anyone with experience navigating de Gaulle know if it's necessary to go through passport control and security to make our connection? If so, I'm concerned we may be cutting it close.
Second, I read that the Chora Church may be undergoing renovation in 2014. We've been looking forward for months to seeing this marvelous place. Can anyone confirm if it's open, or at least partly open, this year? We'll be there in 10 days. If we get through de Gaulle...
Thanks for any insights.
