Adalar: The Islands

 
On a sunny Wednesday we boarded the ferry for the Princes' Islands, stepping onshore at Büyükada. On renting some decrepit old bikes, we circled the pretty little island, stopping off at its terrifying old hilltop orphanage and resting on a rocky outcrop at the island's southern tip. It was well-worth the trip to escape the smog of the city for a day, our very first outside Istanbul since arriving more than two months ago.
