Istanbul Day 3

We went on a boat trip on the Bosphorus River yesterday.  It was called a Hop On, Hop Off boat trip,  We hopped off at a museum to see an exhibit of Anish Kapoor sculptures.  Remember when we were in Paris a couple of years ago and saw Kapoor's installation of Leviathan at the Grand Palais?  How weird that there's an exhibit of his work here when we're in Istanbul.  Husbandman and I have decided that we're going to plan our travels to match Kapoor's exhibit schedule around the world.  In one room a group of people were watching a film about my dream sculpture The Bean in Chicago.  Neat, right?

Today Husbandman has to work and instead of heading out to see Istanbul, I'm having tea and toast and noodling around in cyberspace. But the truth of the matter is this: I take my blog responsibilities seriously.  Still,  c'mon Selfie.  Get out there.

Look at those people in the streets. I'd be sitting having coffee too.

There were fireworks, and we went to this restaurant thinking we might see them because we were out on the terrace, but they were way on the other side of the restaurant and we couldn't. Boo! But we had a stunning view of Bosphorous and a cool bridge that's lit up with colored lights that change colors every few minutes, so it was okay. The views here are pretty great.
