City photos in Istanbul’s European and Asian sides — mostly an excuse to showcase Istanbul’s amazing roaming cat and kitten population. Don’t feel bad for them — they’re quite well fed and well taken care of, like a cross between a stray and an outdoor cat. It’s basically the cutest.

Hi all! So starting in a few minutes, this blog will feature daily (or close to daily) photo posts going back to the beginning of our Southeastern Europe trip in June and July. Hopefully you’re still checking back, because these are of the actually-from-DSLR-cameras, nicer-than-iPhone variety, and we’re really excited for you to see them. Also, if there’s anything else I think of to talk about, you may see some text in here too.
