Too Cold, I say. We thought we’d escape it by going to the Guler Museum, intended to celebrate the work of Magnum photographer Ara Güler. It is the centrepiece of a sort of arts complex that is being developed in a gentrifying section of central Istanbul. It is all very new and the museum hasn’t quite jelled yet, but the building is lovely. I’m sure by the end of the year, it will come together.
We had better luck at the Ara Cafe, named after the same guy and featuring a few of his photos. Then we headed out, Jen to work and I to the hotel to thaw out. Here are a few shots of the hotel garden — cool and relaxing in summer and in winter, just cold.
