I’m still in Istanbul but will leave on Thursday. My next destination might come as a bit of a surprise as it’s a tiny, little bit ;) off my original route: I’ll fly to Bangalore, India. But then again, at least those of you who know me personally should know that I have a really good reason to want to be there. I’ll stay there for 3 weeks and then take another plane to get back on my planned route and continue cycling in East Africa.
Here’s some impressions from Istanbul:
inside Hagia Sophia
I guess those are climatized boxes to keep the guards from suffering heat strokes?
Cruise ship on the Bosphorus
The northern Bosphorus bridge
Inside the grand bazaar
The food here is amazing!
And if you don’t want to eat at a restaurant, here’s all the required ingredients (pictures taken around Mısır Çarşısı)
inside the Basilica Cistern
