If one had but a single glance to give the world, one should gaze on Istanbul. ~Alphonse de Lamartine
Cycling in Istanbul
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.
This photo was taken on a quiet road near the Bosphorus. I took the photo, so the guy in the red jersey, it’s me. The guy in the green jersey and CK Valhall shorts is my friend and neighbour Hürol.
