Impending Spring in Istanbul

Spring blossoms in Istanbul with manaret

The beginning of our stay in Istanbul coincided with the beginning of March, and the slow onset of spring. The temperature was still cold, but blossoms were starting to appear on the trees and every day was milder than the last. And on the streets, we could sense the optimistic, expectant energy which always goes hand-in-hand with the end of winter.

    Lovely pictures!  What’s particularly nice is that thanks to the randomness, some of the pictures wouldn’t look out of places in your guides to Bolivia, Valencia, or Palermo.  With this taster, I’m excited to see what you’ll encounter in your remaining time in Istanbul.

    Wow!  This is like an appetizer menu… at a really good restaurant.  The collection you’ve put together is a great tease.  The official tourism board should pick you up, it’s got me checking flights *grin*

    Great city, great pictures!
    I’m looking forward to the next 88 (or so?) days. Have a great time in İstanbul!
