View from Galata Tower, Istanbul

Spent a weekend in Istanbul checking out the streets and food (such as kofte) and have to say Istanbul is a forward moving city, especially the new part. Old Istanbul is straight out of a history book but new Istanbul is coming on like Manhattan or London.   One evening a friend took me to have dinner in an incredible restaurant called Kosebasi that served some of the best food I’ve ever had.  This shot is a view from the top of the Galata tower looking back on the old city across the river.   Istanbul literally is a wild mix of Classical Europe and Western Asia and arguably one of the most unique cities on the planet.  Click on the photo for full view.
