The Bosporus

I think on all of my tours to Istanbul we have included and enjoyed a boat ride along the Bosporus (Bosphorus), vital waterway linking the Black Sea to the Mediterranean Sea. The Asian side was known as Bythinia in Roman times. Peter addressed his epistles to the saints in various parts of modern Turkey (1 Peter 1:1).

Today there is an interesting article in The New York Times about a boat ride on the Bosporus. I suggest you check this quickly if you are interested. I don’t know how long these links remain active. Click here.

Here is one of the many beautiful photos I have made during a boat ride on the Bosporus.
