A day out in Yeşilköy

Friends living in Yeşilköy take me out for a lovely walk in the neighborhood. A mellow sunday well-spent spotting wooden art-nouveau houses, visiting a number of churches, discovering the tomb of maltese painter Amedeo Preziosi, famous for his watercolor paintings of Istanbul, the Ottoman territories and European capitals, nibbling on the memories of the good old days in the neighborhood and sipping Turkish tea by the water as most Istanbullites do on a sunday.

In Yeşilköy, you come across many things that make istanbul precious in the face of cruel modernism sweeping off the city.
