HO HO in Istanbul

We took the Hop On Hop Off city tour of Istanbul today.

We saw the line fishermen on the Galata Bridge.

The more modern part of Istanbul centers around Taksim Square. this is also where all the buses stop and people use this as a meeting place.

There is a long pedestrian walkway with upscale shopping. The crowds were unbelievable. Some of the side streets had fresh veggies and fruits, fish and meat for sale.

The bus took us past the ruins of the old walls of Istanbul.

We stopped by the Fish Market at the end of the day, there was still a few left for someone's dinner.
