21 March 2017 – I sure wish that our city was as flat as NYC so that our main way of transportation would be to use our own legs. Istanbul is however not the most walking friendly city. One of the rare places where you can walk for hours without getting tired on flat ground is Bagdat Street in the Asian Side and the Shore Drive. I had today visited my friends in the morning at their Asian side home and then walked for hours on Bagdat Street. On the way back, I took the ferry to the European side and despite the fog, we had accompanied by the birds all the way through.
