... as messing around, just messing around, in boats…
We abjure the optional Bosphorus tour at $120 and leave the hotel at the crack of 10 to taxi down to Eminnonu by the Galata Bridge. We buy our 25TL tickets for the 6 hour Bosphorus cruise. There are many fine buildings along the Bosphorus, especially on the European side and the people watching is good.

No people live in the park but some families are allowed to tend stock there – they are the villagers who were displaced when it was turned into a ...
... ancient caves and human dwelling carved right out of the living rock. I found small game trail to lead me through the brambles, and sprinted up the gorge walls as fast as I could! I love stuff like this, and was particularly motivated to reach the cliffs because they looked climb-able.
