Battlefield Tours, Istanbul, Week 1

The first day of sight seeing takes us to the Bosphorus for a ferry trip. Blue, clear skies made it a perfect day to be outside. Many sights to be seen while on the water between Europe and Asia.

I am collecting the correct names for each of the locations I photograph but I’ll post the photos now and add some titles and descriptions as they are collected.

Our visit to the Military Museum was timed so that we could see the Janissary Band perform.

Usually this is conducted inside but as the weather was so clear we got to see a rare outdoor performance.

That was all for day one (a half day). We returned to the hotel for an early dinner and some much needed rest. Day two is a busy day, most of it on foot. More photos then.
