In the beautiful Maria Cristina park, next to the Merinies bains, we can find the replica of the Islamic Noria. It is an old faithful large Muslim wheel reproduction that was used to carry water to the bath or hammam.
It was on a Good Friday when we arrived the Port of Ambarli . Istanbul, is a forty five minutes ride by car assuming a moderate traffic along the way. We are grateful, for the chance to be in port during this times of the year, at least we can have our share of holiday. The sight underway when cruising the Bosphorus strait was fascinating.
