i was quite perplexed by its intricate overall beauty. last month in istanbul, i kept telling myself that there was something most appealing and attractive about this city, but i could not with exactitude pin down what it was. and then it became apparent that for me, it’s all about the bosphorus. istanbul, between two continents, is rich in history, yet i find the historical and geographic significance of the bosphorus so utterly fascinating. the bosphorus joins the sea of marmara with the black sea and divides turkey between asia and europe. it’s all about that spectacular bosphorus. istanbul is. and yet, it’s all about the bosphorus for thebestressup now!
