This morning S & I took the tram up to Kabalas, where we transferred to the funicular and went uphill to Taksim Square. It was a beautiful day, so we decided to walk back down the hill to the Golden Horn and beyond to our hotel.
We took our time walking back, stopping to take photos and to look at the map occasionally. The backstreets of Istanbul can be rather confusing and the streets don't always have signs! But we made our way back to the Galeta Bridge, and from there it was easy -- we just followed the tram tracks. :)
