Our mission: find somewhere to eat. We walked along the Istiklal Street, the main shopping street, and since we were in search of seafood, we decided to walk towards the water. Well, we walked off of the street and quickly realized we weren’t going to be nearing the water in the direction we were walking in. So, before turning back, I took this photo of the city of Istanbul at dusk. End result: We ended up finding a small street off of the main shopping street where we found the most delicious stuffed mussels!
