Ortaköy Day and Night

Last Sunday I had a free day to wander around Istanbul. I started in the Ortaköy neighborhood, along the Bosphorus. Ortaköy is full of brunch places facing the water, and has a well-known Sunday market which draws many visitors. Early in the morning it wasn't busy. But by the time I came back in the early evening from a day of walking, the waterfront walk was packed.

I was able to grab a great spot at the bar of Brasserie Bomonti and watch the sunset. Good pizza, and friendly staff. This was a nice way to cap off a long weekend of exploring Istanbul. I covered 40 miles running and walking from Saturday to Sunday.
