Hakan and I on the ferry

Mad waffles.

Horse drawn carriage almost running me over! Smile!

Hakan at the top of a bit of a hill a little warm and enjoying the wafting scent of horses

On sunday ... or saturday - anyway, over the weekend Hakan and I went to the Prince Islands. Just Islands if you speak Turkish. They're about a 1.5 - 2 hour ferry ride from the city though that's only because the boat is going about as fast as global warming. We went to the farthest island, called the Big Island, which was filled with Istanbulite tourists teetering on bicycles, packing into hawking cafes and careening around in more horse drawn carriages than I've ever seen in one place, let alone an island that's probably only 5 km across. Great festival atmosphere. We left early because it was hot and smelled bad but we had fun nonetheless... and then when we got back to Istanbul we went to see Pirates of the Carribean 3.
