Fishermen over the Galata bridge with their buckets of fish and then made our way to the Grand Bazaar by tram. Also bought some tea and Turkish tea cups that I'm in love with but have to give them as presents ๐ŸŽ๐Ÿ˜ญmanaged to get myself a little something ๐Ÿ˜Š
Today we went to see the Chora church and then had lunch on the Galata bridge while men fish above us. Our taxi driver was wonderful and stopped wherever we asked him and waited for us while we went inside the church.
