[day 8] View of the Golden Horn from our Hotel, Istanbul, Turkey

From the rooftop terrace of our hotel, we had an amazing view of houses and the Golden Horn, an inlet of the Bosphorus, creating a natural harbor. The Bosphorus is a strait that splits Istanbul between the continents of Europe and Asia, and connects the Black Sea with the Sea of Marmara. Across the Golden Horn is the more modernized part of Istanbul and we were able to get to the other side quickly by either using the metro or crossing the bridges. On our terrace, we were able to relax out in the sun and admire the beauty of our surroundings. Lovely day in Istanbul!
