We meet up with my cousin and his friends, and explore the grandly overwhelming Topkapi Palace and the atmospheric Basilica …
Randomest day yet.
Silly photo of us.
High above Istanbul! Also: restaurant kitties, steaming shrimp, and baklava.
Another post to make you hungry. And cat lovers, rejoice.
Ferry rides, a 2500-year-old tower, the best restaurant in Istanbul, and a very strange candied walnut.
Two very good meals, some sketches, a photobooth pic, and a mini geography lesson.
