From Athens to Singapore Part 2 of 12: Turkey
Purple Roofs is happy to welcome back an old friend. Last time, Mike regaled us with tales of his trip through South America. This time, he brings us details from his two month trip from Greece to Singapore. Enjoy!

ISTANBUL: Ankara, located in the center of the country, is the capital city of Turkey but Istanbul is its largest city with some 15 to 16 million people. (Mexico City I believe is still the largest city with 20 plus million, Cairo is maybe the third largest with around 17 million plus people so that leaves either Mumbai or Istanbul as the world’s second largest city with around 18 million… as far as I know.

Istanbul is also unique in that it straddles the Bosphorus Strait with a portion of the city on the European continent and the other portion on the Asian continent, the only such city on two different continents. Connecting the two halves of the city is a suspension bridge.
