Istanbul has a mix of Europe and Asia and the Bosphorus is the strait that lies between the two parts. The Bosphorus connects the northern Black Sea with the southern Sea of Marmara which is connected to the Mediterranean Sea.

How lucky is Istanbul to have such beauty.

On one of the evenings, just before sunset, we took off for a one hour cruise of the Bosphorus.

To make our stay more pleasant, we were served Turkish style tea…

The buildings on both sides could give you a bit of taste of what a combination of European and Middle Eastern, and of old and modern, looks like.
