The Galata Bridge in Istanbul is symbolic of the link between the traditional old city of Istanbul and neighborhoods to the east that are largely non-Muslim. The bridge spans the Golden Horn (the primary inlet of the Bosphorus) and has been rebuilt five times. These are some of the sites I saw on either side of the bridge and on the bridge itself.
I believe we were headed towards Takism Square here…
I’m also a collector of street graffiti “art”!
Nice view of the Bosphorus…
The fishing must be excellent!
Pigeon love (except for their poo-poo)
Istanbul is a city that would take a year or more to fully explore!
