Really a great tour to take

I was in Istanbul years ago. This street and Taqsim have been chaged so much. There was a culture center on square but not now. On the beginning a mosque structure. And there were some trees beyond the street on my previously visit. World is changing.

I saw the street as an old woman with a lot of make up. Historical buildings are hiding behind of the lights. I suggest you to taste local street foods next to Flower passage.
