The ceiling of the newly renovated Pera Palace Hotel in Beyoğlu, Istanbul. The hotel was originally built in 1892 to host upscale guests from the Orient Express such as Agatha Christie (she apparently wrote Murder on the Orient Express in her room on the 4th floor), Zsa Zsa Gabor, Greta Garbo, Ernest Hemingway, Rita Hayworth, and Mata Hari.
