I love to stand and watch the fishermen – their techniques, smile a little, genuinely look interested. They even start engaging and showing me their catch. Maybe it’s because I grew up on the West Coast of BC and went fishing with my dad soooo much..Whatever it is, there’s something about fishing that is calming and makes me feel happy. 🙂
Right at the north base of the bridge, there is a little market and there you can buy all sorts of fresh fish and even rent rods, if you want to try out your fishing luck. 🙂
And underneath the bridge are restaurants selling seafood..some of it I am sure bought from the market – talk about fresh fare!
And at night you can watch the sun set on the Bosporus…not a bad way to end a day in Istanbul. 🙂
