Istanbul - Take a walk at twilight and peer through the entrance to a glass museum in Istanbul, a cafe in Kocaeli, and a florist in Izmit. Throughout Turkey you can find lights shining through glass.
Twilight is an amazing time of day. Before sunlight becomes moonlight, strange things can be seen—especially when lights shine through glass. I journeyed across the Bosporus at Istanbul and watched rain outside the boat's window, changing an impression of Hydarpasha Train Station as we sailed past. I found a museum in Istanbul that featured a moving ceiling where layers of flat glass tilted at different angles while people walked through the entrance toward walls of sheer crystal. I discovered the Marina cafe near the Marmara Sea as boat lights blazed inward through the cafe's windows and reflected off a glass of tea. I walked down a twilight street and discovered a florist with all varieties and colors of blooms grouped behind the plate glass storefront. They framed the owner who sat within. Nearby, a dress boutique displayed elegant gowns and hair adornments behind a glass barrier so polished it could barely be seen. Twilight illumines even everyday things.
