My first Saturday in Istanbul felt well deserved after a tiring first week of proofreading at the office. I planned to attend the Turkish conversation club organised at 11AM by Yasom on Istiklal avenue in Beyoğlu, but I left home late and ended up taking the wrong vapur to Beşiktaş instead of Kabataş.
As the vapur drifted starboard, I realised my half-hearted effort to attend Yasom (and spend yet more time indoors) was turning into a delicious opportunity to venture somewhere new. Can you blame me? Look at that weather!
I still made it to the conversation club and attended the English session instead.
