Papa vanished from the Surface – in Istanbul

Why has papa vanished from the Surface?DSC_0725 
Papa was encouraged to meet the two Medusas. 
Underground in Istanbul. By Anna and Ingelin and Zeynep.

Were they fed up with papa? Would they have some minutes to do what women likes to do?
What did happened?

Has his women left him over to take care of himself in the deep darkness?

Or? Or?

It’s dark and wet.  And huge. And a bit scary  - the subterrain sounds.

And it’s from the ancient time – what can
we meet here? At the end..

Underground as it is – ancient Byzants – Miklagard. What was this underground Cistern used for? For what purpose?

You'd have to be sure you didn't have a subterranean phobia, Tor! I can see why you'd want to come out into the sunlight...kinda like after being on a submarine for awhile!
