Dear Liz,

Indeed, Istanbul is a great city - populous, complex, layer upon layer of history, colourful, and dynamic. WE enjoyed our visits to major historical monuments, museums, and places of worship. We enjoyed travelling around the city by ship, tram, taxi, train and on foot.

This photo is one of the series taken during our exploratory walk of the old walls of the city - beyond which Istanbul has spread far.

I am pleased to share my photos with you.

Warm regards,

Hi Berend,

D and T were just married - according to the messages on the little red car.

This parkland area is located between the main wall and the outer wall, and runs down to the shores of the Golden Horn. On this fine sunny day, there were many families sharing around small barbecues that they had brought into the park. By lunch time the park was filled with smoke from the many grills.

We enjoyed beautiful weather in Istanbul - as we did in NL.

Kind regards,
