You’re bringing a strong turban game, but some doubter is giving you the side eye
you’re having the mother of all essay crises
The alarm clock is going and you just can’t get up
you pratfall and people just laugh and point
you be feeling the rain even though you’re a lion
you be a badass rap star even though you’re an angel too.

Lots of these on street corners in Istanbul; this one was at Tophane.
A trip to the hammam
and the next door mosque
Walking along to Istanbul Modern we saw this hunting lodge-like building that could have belonged in Germany, and this mosque, which was sadly closed. (A lot of them seem to be undergoing restoration at the moment.) At least the Tophane fountain couldn’t be closed.
Saw this and a lot of smog and decided to give Istanbul Modern a miss – it was clearly going to take a bit more brainpower than we had that time (although I would recommend it as from the peep inside they did have some very fresh art)
and wander on instead to some gardens overlooking town and an Art Deco apartment.
