We took a delightful cruise of the Bosphorus Strait, which connects the Marmara Sea to the Black Sea.   Europe is on one side and Asia on the other side.

Simits are sold by street vendors, who either have a simit trolley or carry the simit in a tray on their head.   Simit is a circular bread with sesame seeds, which is made with molasses.
