Visiting the Spice Market and Grand Bazaar - An experience for all the senses
One word: Pomegranates! Whether it was in juice form (pomegranate/orange was a favorite), salads or vinagrettes... Delicious.
Views of the city from the Galata Tower, made even more special by reaching the summit at sunset... Simply spectacular!
Taking in the the local scene at Istiklal Caddesi... Crowded yet fun for watching young, fun Istanbul (the little side streets are not to be missed).
here). The kids love the show as much as they love the ice cream. An experience not to be missed.
And lastly, getting together with friends who took time from their busy schedules to show us a little slice of their town and to answer the million questions we had about Turkish culture... I will treasure the time we spent together!!!... They made our time in Istanbul much more memorable. I hope we get to see them again soon!
