  I still can't get over the mosques
by danchatman

We had just arrived at the entrance to the Blue Mosque when we were approached by a man offering his services as a guide. HIs $10 fee would include admission as well. Looking over his shoulder, I could see the sign suggesting admission fees, which I think were about $4 per person.
Pass on the guide, and politely decline. Just remember to remove your shoes...
