Christmas 2012, Istanbul (Asian side).

It was a bit odd celebrating Christmas in a non-Christian country this year. For example; Christmas decorations are sold in most grocery store yet wrapping paper does not exist.

We parked by the water on the Asian side of Istanbul, went on a big walk under the warm sun then retreated to the van for some holiday celebrations.
