Reaction to the Documentary Planes Trains and Canes (Part 3)

In episode 3 of Planes Trains and Canes Mona visits Istanbul Turkey.

I like that this episode really shows the reality of what it is like to travel as a person who is blind. There is nothing wrong with asking for help. It is better to be safe than sorry. We also see how the lack of accessibility can really hinder a person who is blind or visually impaired. This makes me appreciate the clear and accessible sidewalks and crosswalks in the cities across the U.S. There is still room for improvement but it is better than other places around the world.

The public transportation is actually rather accessible so that is a good thing. The people in this city are very helpful and do seem to understand what the white cane is for.

It was fun getting to explore Istanbul.
