To come to Istanbul and never visit the famous Taksin Square seems all wrong, so we caught the modern cable car (the Turks call it a funicular railway, which it isn't) up the hill to the square. On emerging, we saw a huge concreted area, totally unattractive. "What's all this about?" we wondered. Wandering a few hundred metres we came into a large and beautiful parkland area with large ...
