Hard to believe it hasn't even been three weeks yet since we returned from Istanbul.
All day today I was having flashbacks to Jan. 15, when we all went to Bebek, and, once there, I left Marta and Misha at the playground by the Bosphorus and set off for a long walk.
This walk consisted of much climbing, getting lost somewhere around Bebek Dağı Sokağı, running into the Boğaziçi Üniversitesi that, if I remember correctly, a dear friend of mine attended back in 2002-03, then finding my way out again and descending down Günaydın Yolu back to the Bosphorus minutes before the sun disappeared behind the hills.
It was such a nice walk - I felt so free that day! - and I longed to look at the pictures today, but the way I store them is kind of messy, and I've only gotten through to them now. Below is a pretty random selection, and it doesn't reflect the beauty of that walk or anything else about it at all - and yet it feels good to have these pictures within reach somewhere...
