And down come more branches!

In response to the accident yesterday, the local council is now removing many of the the branches (and most of the shade provided) from the 2 large gum trees and one smaller ‘pepper’ tree. I could hardly believe it a minute ago when I saw the worker cutting off the top branches of the pepper tree – but now he has stopped and moved onto the other gum.

Other news this morning: a few small bomb explosions hit Istanbul.
