From Barcelona, we flew to Istanbul! Our original plan was to go to Morocco, but after hearing about a few bombings, we decided Istanbul was a safer bet.
By the time we arrived and got settled it was getting late, so we decided to just explore our neighbourhood. There was a Mosque nearby, with a huge park in front of it, so we went there first and came across a festival:
We stayed to watch for a bit, before heading down to the water.
Finally we were forced to head back to our hostel. But I was very interested in seeing more of this city in the daylight.
