Istaklal. An estimated one million people walk this street every day. We were two of them every day were were in Istanbul. Because we're that cool.

View from Laurie's 3

The view we woke up to every day. Topkapi is on the left, then the Aya Sofia and the Blue Mosque. The waterway is the Golden Horn and behind the monuments you can kind of see the Sea of Marmara.
