1st day of April… It was winddy, but sunny and warm. I jumped on my bike and ride it to the North, to the Black Sea.
Another Sunday bike ride in Istanbul… I started as early as 6:00 in the morning, first headed to South (Ortaköy), then climbed up to Maden (Sarıyer) and went to Rumeli Lighthouse village.
It’s March now and March is the month of misty, chilly mornings in Istanbul. It was a beautiful Sunday morning, the roads were empty. But it would be crowded soon, so I hurried to ride my bike for an hour or two.
The winter came early this year in Istanbul. We already started wearing coats. Amazingly, the air is smelling like snow. I remembered the snowy winter of 2012 (the photos below are from January 2012).
