Dick and Marilyn look at Medusa's head in The Sisterna.
We had intended to go on across the Golden Horn and take the Tunnel to Istiklal, but that would have been too exhausting, so we saved that for another day. Istanbul is such an exciting city and everyone we met was very kind. It was such a fun day! That evening we returned to Bagdad Street and dined out in Café Cadde, just across the road from where we live. There we were well looked after by our favourite waiter, Hakan.
On Sunday, we took the ferry to Beşiktaş, where we caught another ferry to Anadolu Kavağı, a pretty fishing village on the Asiatic side of the northern end of the Bosphorus leading out into the Black Sea. High above the village are the ruins of Anadolu Kavağı Kalesi, a medieval castle that was first built by the Byzantines, it was restored and reinforced by the Genoese in 1350, and later by the Ottomans.
