The Golden Horn

Some say that it is the myth. Some say that it is the gold of the empires. Others point out to the school of fishes swimming the Horn surface and the sliver of gold that they catch from the evening sun. It may not be possible to know the origin of the name accurately but one is bound to forget the debate and everything else besides when the sun sets on the Golden Horn.

A Golden Horn sunset is reputed to be a lifetime affair. The water sparkles with a rich yellow that takes on a life of its own. The glow of the gold in the air and water is supposed to touch the hearts of people who watch it. Tourist lore assuming the proportion of an urban legend says that those who fall in love on a Golden Horn evening always stays together. Always.
