Our friend, Adnan Salihoglu, organized a boat trip on the Sea of Marmara and the Bosphorus, where these views of the European and Asian shorelines of Istanbul were snapped. Also on board were Adnan's friends Aydin and his lovely wife Gurur, a photo of whom (taken aboard our boat) ends this series of vistas.

One of the largest metroplises in the world at 14 million, Istanbul is the only city that spans two continents (the Thracian part of Europe and the Anatolian peninsula of Asia Minor).
