Good grief, it's the last day of October and a month since the last post! So what has been happening at the barn? Well, I got to go somewhere I'd always wanted to visit - Istanbul! Who am I kidding? There isn't anywhere I don't want to visit!
|Every type and flavour of Baklava!|
|Istiklal Caddesi, the main pedestrian thoroughfare. definitely|
the place to be on a Saturday night. At the end of the
street is the Tunel, a funicular built by the French in 1874,
making it slightly younger than the London Underground
|A backgammon bower!|
|Looking towards Asia going under the Bosphorus bridge|
|Sultan Ahmet Camii (the Blue Mosque)|
commissioned by a nineteen year old!
|Sponges, soaps and soothing lotions|
|I wanted to buy every one of these pashminas!|
|The Egyptian or Spice Bazaar|
Just looking at the pictures and checking names in my guidebook makes me want to run to the airport and get on the next Turkish Airlines flight! I didn't see everything but left plenty for the next visit. Talking of Turkish airlines, they could teach American Airlines a thing or two about airline food! It was delicious, tasty and spicy, are you taking notes, AA?
Thank you for reading this far on what appears to be a travel blog with not a stitch in sight! It's late and I am tired so I'll save the stitching for another day. I enjoy comments or emails so much so don't steal away without telling me you were here and a cheery wave to all my new followers, thank you!
