Istanbul - Around Balat

This is a boat used to clean the Golden Horn. Very simple : A driver drives the boat around and a man in the front picks up all the litter. It's better than nothing I guess but mostly ineffective.


Near Balat


Bulgarian Church in Balat

An Orthodox School for girls. It used to be a church. The only church that wasn't changed into a mosque when the ottomans came and conquered Constantinople (former name of Istanbul) in 1453.
