The area next to the church of St Savior in Chora is actually the Armenian and Greek quarter. The Ottoman houses here have been restored and are absolutely a marvel to behold. It's not cheap, Ottoman houses are all made of wood and we saw a lot of them in various dilapidated states. There is a very small Greek and Armenian population, mos have been either killed as in the Armenian Genocide or leaft during the Greek-Turkish population exchange, another tragedy. I'm writing a book and my head is exploding, I've been reading all about the Byzantine Empire, the Armenian Genocide, the Greek-Turkish population exchange, the Orthodox church- architecture and liturgy, the Bible and various Bible commentaries. Every day the postman brings me stacks and stacks of books that I ordered. I've read them all and a few times over. I'm a voracious reader. I'm tweedling my thumbs right now with nothing to read, waiting for the next wave of books to arrive.
