Musician inside the boat to Eminönü

Muita gente diz que o melhor de Istambul são as travessias de barco. Concordo. A paisagem urbana vista quer das margens, quer do barco, é simplesmente fabulosa. O primeiro registo é uma vista de Karaköy e foi feito enquanto eu e a Nazlı estávamos no barco à espera que ele arrancasse para Eminönü. O segundo foi feito já do lado de Eminönü. No entanto, a vista não é de Kadiköy, mas sim de Karaköy, com a ponte Galata à esquerda. O frio era muito intenso! O desenho tinha que ser rápido… O terceiro registo foi feito no átrio da Yeni Cami (mesquita).

A lot of people say that the best from Istanbul are the boat crossings. I agree. The urban landscape viewed from the shores and from the boat is absolutely fabulous. The first drawing is a view of Karaköy and it was made while me and my rebel princess (Nazlı) were in the boat waiting for it to go to Eminönü. The second one was made at Eminönü near the shore. But the view is not from Kadiköy, but from Karaköy, with the Galata Bridge on the left. The cold was so intense! The drawing had to be fast… The third drawing was made inside the New Mosque (Yeni Cami).
