Istanbul: Turkish Dance Show

To experience a little culture, we made reservations at the Hodjapasha Cultural Center to see a traditional Turkish dance show. I thought part of the show included the famous Turkish Whirling Dervishes, but found out when we arrived that they are actually a separate show, with a separate ticket price. Ahhh yes, the Turks know how to make a buck off their tourism. :)

So, instead we saw some traditional country dances of Turkey and of course, belly dancers. It was a very fun show and we were glad we went. They even had a male belly dancer, who was very good, but very unexpected. As you can imagine, it was hard to capture photos, but here are a few to give you a taste of the performances.
