Istanbul, Day 1

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.
