Then we walked through Istiklal Street and went to Karakoy by tunnel, then to Eminonu / Grand Bazaar
Estella felt a bid tired because of walking since places are not near to each other in Istanbul.
Other day we meet with Some Etsy friends from European Street Team at Kadıkoy. This was my first time that I see them, we had lovely time.
Painting stairs has started 2-3 weeks ago in Istanbul, one morning we have just seen that one the stairs in Istanbul (Fındıklı) has been painted in Rainbow colors. It was lovely so everybody has taken photos and put that photos on social media. But the other day we have seen that stairs were painted grey again during the night. Then protests started and people started to painted stairs in rainbow colors.
Rainbow includes every color in it but grey is only one color we want to see Istanbul colorful instead of uniform grey places and people.
Next day we have visitid another Etsy firend, Kristin.
During weekend we have taken a short Bosphorus tour. Actually it was my firts time to hear a short bosphorus tour, it was nice but a bid like fast-food:) Normally tour was going to Kavak ( where you can eat wonderful fresh fishes, mussels etc.) through Bosphorus stay there 1-2 hrs. then comes back to Eminonu. This short one is a newly created one but we had no enough time so taken the short trip.
Other day we went to Kadıkoy and Yoğurtçu Parkı and Estella has also taken some of my jewelries photographs during her visit which was very useful for me. I had a grey stone at my home as background of my jewelries' photographs but I haven't used it at all since I find it a bid shiny. Estella has taken some lovely photos with that grey stone and some of my leaves with wood . I think I am going to use that stone more on my jewelries' photos as background.
on my shop .
And, this is the end of the visit. She went back to Marmaris now.
Hope to meet with her again some time some where.
