If one had but a single glance to give the world, one should gaze on Istanbul. ~Alphonse de Lamartine
Cycling in Istanbul on a warm December day
December is usually cold and wet (usually rainy but sometimes it also snows) in Istanbul. But, this year, the first days of December was warm (around 20°C / 68°F) and sunny. A bit windy, though, but the south winds is the main reason why it was extraordinarily warm. So it was a good opportunity to get on our bikes last weekend.
