A Week in Istanbul

Dear readers,

I often think of you and wish you were beside me as I experience different parts of Istanbul. The next best thing, I guess, is bringing you along photographically. Here are some photo highlights of the past week.

Sunday, September 16, near Istiklal Avenue

How many cats can you find in this picture?

Monday, September 17, Istinye

Would someone please explain this?

Tuesday, September 18, Arnavutkoy
