Farewell to Istanbul
As I bid farewell to Istanbul, here is one last set of photos.
Istiklal street, Beyoglu.
The Grand Bazaar.
All the shiny things are for sale, including nautical antiques.
Egyptian spice market.
Fishing from the Galata bridge.
Galata tower, Beyoglu, from across the Golden Horn.
Sultan Suleiman mosque, from the other side of the Golden Horn.
The Halic bridge, the fourth and newest bridge across the Golden Horn. This cable-stayed bridge carries pedestrian traffic as well as a metro line. There is a metro station (usable, but still being completed) in the center of the bridge.
Nighttime in the alley behind the Downtown Istanbul hostel.
