Tour: Istanbul New District Walk, Istanbul, Turkey
Date: Jul 9, 2013

I had a great day wandering around the New District of Istanbul with Safiye. She is clearly someone who is proud of her heritage and very knowledgeable about her adopted city. It was my first day in Turkey and although we saw plenty of wonderful sights such as The Galata Tower, the nineteenth century shopping arcades, the Blue Tile mosque and Spice Market, it was perhaps being able to talk to an ordinary local person about Turkey, Istanbul and their views of the world in general that made the day.
