Street art Istanbul Kadiköy Part 1

I arrived in Istanbul yesterday afternoon after a connection in Dubai to picture perfect weather. Once I had dropped my bag at the hotel, I took the opportunity to walk off the jet lag by exploring the Kadiköy neighborhood on the Asian side of Istanbul. For 4 TL, one can hop a quick ferry at Karaköy (at the foot of the Galata Bridge) on the European side of the Bosphorus, and 20 minutes or so later land at Kadiköy on the other side. The neighborhood recently hosted a number of local and international street artists for Mural Istanbul, so that was an added bonus to the visit.
