Merhaba Murat Bey,
This is a very nicely composed shot. I can never tire of sites that I know well. as for the Archaeological Museum... it is my favorite haunting place in Istanbul, always near the top of my places to visit. In the 70s and early 80s I had a relative who served as the director of the museum, further incentive for making visits.

there is just enough snow covering the parking lot to allow the wheel tracks to show, and it is interesting to see the maneuvers the drivers have attempted. The cars completely covered with snow haven't move yet. a few of the cars have driven in and out making 3-point turns (the car second from the left. Several have come in and made u-turns and left.
Excellent note, informing us of Chisinau. I've never been to Moldova.

Now this would he an interesting discovery for even a New Yorker. I imagine in the 20th century, this would have been an area that the FBI would have kept a close eye on, looking for German sympathizers. Your photograph is sharp and reveals the detail of the carvings.

Well... this "news" about the weather back home has only served to make me more smug as I plan my timetable for my upcoming road trip in a motorhome up the coast, north of Sydney...
Sitting here in my shorts, the coldest thing I have handled today is the steak I took out of the freezer in preparation for a barbecue later on...
Life's a beach sometimes... off to give my throat a workout with a bottle of the local brew... chilled of course!
