The Oliver Twist of Fatih, Istanbul
We watched this scenario unfold at the cash machine.
The photos are in order / sequence and one can observe Oliver in the green shirt / blue sleeves first attempt to obtain some of the spoils from his fellow gang member (purple shirt).
Refusal leads to tears then fisticuffs.
Oliver then tries his luck at the cash machine, succeeds and finally runs off with loot of his own.

Serbethane tunnel to Hagia Sophia
Serbethane Cafe & Restaurant is a really great venue to be found at Sultanahmet Mah. Kabasakal Cad.Arasta Carsisi, no: 117 Sultanahmet, Istanbul, Turkey.
We visited Serbethane two nights in a row, before returning home, and couldn’t help noticing the tunnel below which leads through to Hagia Sophia.
The nights fall gently at Fatih, Istanbul
Wikipedia: “Fatih is a municipality (belediye) and district in Istanbul, Turkey that encompasses most of the peninsula coinciding with historic Constantinople.
In 2009, the district of Eminönü, formerly a separate municipality located at the tip of the peninsula, was merged into Fatih. Fatih borders the Golden Horn to the north and the Sea of Marmara to the south, while the Western border is demarked by the Theodosian wall. The mayor is Mustafa Demir (AKP)”.
