Istanbul city planning is centered around the M&M theory of Mosques and Malls. I'm not actually sure the skyscraper in the background is a mall, but let's pretend it is.
The bridge leading from Beyoğlu to Eminönü filled with people fishing in the Golden Horn.

Evrim looking at the birds (that is, after I told her to so I could take a photo)
The evolution street on Adalar. We took a photo for the occasion since it's not every day a street is named after Evrim.
