Herman and I are in Istanbul this week. It is one of our favorite cities to visit, and I have a million impressions rattling my head about this place. I’m still battling jetlag (for some reason its really kicking my butt this time. Must be old age) so I’m still taking things slow. But we are walking ten to fifteen miles per day because there is so much to see and experience here. The problem is, this city is built on hills, so all our walking us more up and down. Not so easy with jetlag.
My first post will be about a national obsession: deserts. If you have a sweet tooth, then this is the place to come. The desert shops are five to a block here.
