Walk in Istanbul

Lots of pictures today. I'm trying this new photo camera from work, the weather is very nice (in the 90's°F = 30's°C), so I decided to walk to work today by doing some detours. I walked about 7.5 km today. which is alright but they're are a lot of hills in Istanbul so it's actually a bit exhausting especially with this weather but I love hot weather.

The wall of the Dolmabahçe Palace.

Phone booths

Same minarets, different angles


Finally at work.

I decided to walk back home from another route this time.

Some gypsies in Taksim Park.

First time in my life I dare to ride those cable cars in Istanbul, and by myself. They go above the Maçka park.
