I adore this ethnic city! Brimming with history and diversity: colours, smells, and spices! There is so much to look at and take in every second and such interesting faces inhabiting the cobbled narrow streets of Istanbul. And the FOOD! Pomegranate juice crushed on every street corner, chestnuts roasting as the sun sets… Every flavour of Turkish delight you can imagine, laced in rose petals or crushed pistachio… and just as many tea flavours to wash it down with! The population is vast, the droves of tourists contributing to this greatly, as well as the street cats, well looked-after by the locals. A city of vast contrast… I can’t wait to go back and take more pictures of what I see! But for now I will let these images tell the story of a day in Istanbul as they say so much more than I can!
