The Bosphorus Bridges are almost as iconic in Istanbul as the Hagia Sophia or Blue Mosque. They are especially significant for the modern Istanbul. They're big and beautiful and colorful.
The bridges light up at night. For hours, they interrupt the darkness of the Bosphorus with a gentle light show.
Day and night tours up and down the Bosphorus are really popular, and last night we saw a party boat lit like one of the bridges.
I got really excited because it combines a lot of my favorite things: parties, boats, lights, Istanbul references, parties, lights.
