Save a few leashed exceptions, these are some of the stray dogs seen wandering (or lounging) around Istanbul. More about Istanbul’s street dogs in this post.
Just a few of them. In three-and-a-half months of walking the streets, I only saw one rodent…. in the mouth of a cat! There is a new documentary about Istanbul’s cats. Here is the trailer.

This tile mural is on the wall of the train tunnel. An area not too far from Osmanbey was used as an archery grounds for the sultans in the early Ottoman empire. Maybe this mural refers to that, I really don’t know for sure. It is kind of dimly lit on the far side of the tracks, but you get the idea.
