Istanbul Football!

Match Day Colors

It was match day when I took this photo along the shore of the Bosphorus.

Istanbul has several superb football (soccer) teams named for the districts in the city from which they originally sprang: Beşiktaş (black and white), Fenerbahçe (yellow and purple), Galatasaray (yellow and red).

Lots of people travel to Turkey to see matches, of course, but if you’re not a fan or going to the match, it’s a good idea to be far away when the match is over: traffic jams are enormous and long-lived.
