Galata Bridge

Galata Bridge

I'm on the Galata Bridge. It's raining and I'm soaked to the bone but I don't seek shelter. The night is young and there's still much to see. I see men fishing on the bridge surrounded by shrieking seagulls. As I walk past them I wonder if they catch anything fishing this way. I plan my next stop. Looking at the horizon I see the Galata Tower and I know my destination.
