Just after leaving Sabanci Museum I found a taxi with help of an employee at the museum who was very polite and called a taxi for me to make sure I get to my destination safe. Hospitality, warmth and kindness of these people makes me love Istanbul so much more!
...My destination was Beylerbeyi Palace (Beylerbeyi Sarayı, Beylerbeyi meaning "Lord of Lords") which is situated in the Asian Part of Istanbul in the north of Bosphorus Bridge.
Beylerbeyi Palace was commissioned by Sultan Abdulaziz (1830–1876) and built between 1861 and 1865 as a summer residence and a place to entertain visiting heads of state.
Palace is so ever gorgeous that I find it hard to explain. Unfortuntely, I was not sure if photography was allowed or not so I took only few pictures.
As I arrived I somehow joined a group of Tajik tourists which enthusiastically told me everything I missed hearing from the guide when I was wearing "medical booties" above my shoes... and here journey in the museum began...
I can go on with my writing. But you are probably bored of reading. Thus I will stop. And so you can take a look at the pictures before reaching for the phone and writing to an appropriate travelling partner on whatsapp. You should probably start with "So...when is it best suitable time for you to fly to IST?"

|Oh, and that lovely couple!|

|And look who keeps me company!|
