Taksim and Kadıköy

Yesterday, we took the metro down to Taksim and walked around for a few hours. It is definitely a more tourist-y area but there were a lot of great shops and restaurants, and the architecture was really beautiful.

The weather here last week was beautiful; it was over 50 degrees most days. This week has been cold and rainy, but compared to home I really can’t complain about the weather here.

Today, we took a ferry over to the Asian side of the city to Kadıköy. I’ve officially been to Asia now! It was cold so we only stayed for a little while, but while we were there we walked around and checked out the shops and markets.

Not sure if this is something I’ll try…

  1. Great photos! Love the architecture in the rain.
    Amazing how a bit of lettuce garnish can make skinned sheep heads more appealing 😉

      • I am so impressed by the vivid colors and textures of what you are seeing and photographing. Even the green (fence) grill (with cats!) is so artistic – this adventure should put a few pictures on your walls in the US.
        Enjoy,
