Moose looks on as Tony cannot resist the urge to buy another old fashioned toy for his grand kids. I think his purchases brings back fond memories of his childhood here.
Soon enough we continue our walk along Divanyolu but without the pageantry of the council of ministers from yesteryear's. However, Divanyolu is still one of the main happening streets in Istanbul.
At the corner of Babtali Street we find an octagonal shape building, the tomb of Mahmud The Second (1840).
Its is displayed that Sultan Mahmud The Second had thirty three kids. I believe eighteen girls and fifteen boys.
A day full of sightseeing and the night sky warns of rain as we make our way to dinner. Moose maneuvers narrows streets lined with cars before we receive valet parking at a multi floor restaurant overlooking Istanbul Bogazi (Bosphorus).
For culinary diversity Moose order a Turkish lettuce wrap that contains parsley, peppers, lemon and “sushi lamb”.
A planned hillside tour for night view of the Istanbul is bypassed as the city becomes drenched in a cleansing rain.
