day 65_Istanbul_first impressions

I did not expect the hilly terrain. Obviously it was not as extreme as in Hong Kong, however, it still resulted in very interesting spatial conditions in the older parts of the city. The way the buildings carved into the slopes of the streets, entrances half-submerged into the ground... as if the architecture was growing straight up from the city’s hills.
