We didn’t time it to be this way, but the last part of our stroll took us into sunset along the Bosphorus. For that, I am incredibly grateful because the view was stunning! There were so many fishermen along the banks (what they were catching, he knows, I’m sure the jellyfish dissolved anything that tried to come close) and lots of vendors selling treats and snacks.
We knew we were leaving in the morning to catch our plane, so–maybe I can only speak for myself in this–I was really soaking it in. How many times am I really going to be able to do this in my life, you know? I feel exceptionally blessed to have taken the trips that I took this year and to make it back safely from them (no matter what the turbulence around Newark airport has to say about it) and I can’t wait to see what next year brings!
(these last three don’t really need their own post, I just wanted to look at the food again. ;))
