While the trip’s aim was to visit the Black Sea in Turkey, the journey of the 4 friends started in Constantinople, the beautiful city overlooking the Bosphorus. The first day, Zeinab and I arrived, followed by Houssam and Rabih at night. It was raining like I’ve never seen rain before. We could see the water level rising by the minute.
We landed in the morning of the 18th of May, 2012. After a quick visit to Milka, we saw the Basilica Sisterna, drowned in the rain, and then ended the night at a restaurant in Haydar Pasha with Tangör and beautiful Güher. Rabih was generous enough to buy us 10 train tokens, for a train that ceased to exist. Thanks Rabih!
