Istanbul. September, 2014

Dr. Blake does not like crowds. But he loves Istanbul. So I had to be very strategic in mapping out walking routes from here to there. One place avoided: this underground shopping arcade that affords an easy way to avoid the multi-lane main road and get from the Galata Bridge to the Spice Market. The crowd, overwhelming at times, tends to amuse rather than frighten me. Which is why I had to go out on my own, camera in hand, to the famous market and the nearby "New Mosque" (built 1597-1663.)
