    Cats everywhere!

    Cats are everywhere in Istanbul. But the place where I found more was at the Cemeteries… maybe they feel safer and quieter there J)

    A nice couple of cats!

    From the Selim Mosque (between Sultanahmet and Eyup) you can have a wonderful view of the Golden Horn with Pera at one side and Sultanahmet at the other. Better for sunsets…
