The next day after arriving in Istanbul, we boarded a bus to head for a ski resort area near Bursa.   It seemed that everyone wanted to leave Istanbul over the Bosphorus Strait at the same time.

Next we had to take a ferry across the Marmara Sea.

The roads through some of the towns along the way seemed quite narrow for the big bus.

Our hotel in Uludag.  It appears to have been designed to look like a mountain.

From our hotel window, we could watch shepherds and their flocks, grazing on the mountainside.
