But before I go do that... let me tell you or rather show you... my recent excursion to the city of Istanbul .
The best word to describe would probably be .. busy.... the city's population... 16-20 million... they can't really say...i think that says everything.... including 2 million internationals... So yes.. stick your forks in the fondue pot! They got it all !
Between street cats, the craziest traffic I have experienced to date... new yorkers- feel laughed at ! Meats roasting everywhere, harmonizing architecture fitting every mood of - pick your city-! burkas, craZy chanting (or rather to much - to early chanting), cashmere scarves swaying in all directions, and turkish coffee, I found myself exploring one of the oldest cities in Europe.
Here's the peek
Sketchiest vintage store I've ever been to... you were basically shopping in the dark.. is that a chucky doll on the right ..?
Note to oneself.. dishes will be shopped in Istanbul . period.
Did I mention their tiling and pattern skills ? Probably one of my favorites and most inspiring to me personally ! I'll be sure to post some of them in the future...
