Wandering around Istanbul was one of the many highlights of the trip. One the bonuses was that I was in Istanbul during the Ramadan festival, which was just a wonderful reminder of just how much people of the world are more alike than dissimilar.
After the natural beauty of the Cappadocia region, the nature of Istanbul — man-made over thousands of years and multiple ruling cultures, was perfect in my eyes. I quickly decided this was one of the few cities in the world I could possibly live in for a good bit of time.
And the shopping. O my, the shopping. Not that I am much of a shopper, but for those that are, you have options ‘o plenty. Here’s but one example that caught my photographer’s eye.
