Today is Sunday and all Turkish people are having picnic next to the road. Everywhere. 😉

One family whistled us back when we passed them. They were so friendly and invited us, we stayed several hours. Sorry I have only this picture.

The highway (road 020) to Istanbul. Sadly there was a very big building site, for 20 km, the biggest I have ever seen. So crazy, so destroying, we found out that “he” is building a new airport, the third airport, for Istanbul. And it should become bigger than Frankfurt. Unfortunately the landscape there is very hilly. So they make everything flat. The thousands trucks looked like ants on this extreme building site. Too bad.

With 14 Mio. (people here say up to 20 Mio.) inhabitants Istanbul is crazy big.

At this day we took the ferryboat to the Asien part of Istanbul, to Kadiköy, and cycled to the best bicycle shop in Istanbul. Www.bisikletgezgini.com

My backweehl has a little space in the hub. So sooner or later it will get damaged if I cycle on. Alex opened the hub and we inspected the ball bearings. The cone had very bad scratches. So I decided to buy a new Shimano LX hub. Luckily Alex had time and repaire it the same day.
