Before spending several hours this afternoon catching up on my blog, I decided to join the rest of the guys in our group for a boat ride today on the Bhosphorus. The Bhosphorus is the straight of water that divides
Istanbul. It is also a major trade route.

Old Istanbul was protected by a fortified wall, each time it was invaded and taken the wall was strengthened
