  Galata and Taksi
by Lion_Beat

You can take a taksi...
All the taksi's are yellow in Istanbul. And you dont have to wait for it, as its always plenty of them on the street.
The taksi drivers drive like crazy!
but the ethernal question is - will I be cheted?
If you'll let them!

Almost all the taksi's in Istanbul are TOFAS (turkish brand), made exactly as old FIAT Regata. And its like a tradition, if its a taksi its Tofas! Just recently you can notice new Fiat Doblo on streets (really comfortable if you ask me) and some Renault Megane. All are yellow!
