eye candy

Ah yes, we did it all; Hagia Sophia, Sultan Ahmed Mosque, Top Kapi Palace - all breathtakingly beautiful and I strained my neck from looking up at all those amazing ceilings.

We saw whirling Dervishes, an excellent exhibition at the Istanbul Modern museum and almost got lost at the Grand Bazaar. The only thing I didn't do was take a bath in a hammam. I had really looked forward to it, but my tight budget couldn't allow it.

Turkish IKEA.

Love the white ones especially.


  1. Beautiful! I love the colors and textures of a foreign nation.

  2. Did you try the fish? It says "very fresh". These have green bones!

  3. Lovely photos, not to mention those of the post before this, wonderful!
