A week in Istanbul

Istanbul - there are words to fully describe this magnificent city. We spent a week in Istanbul in March'12. Rather than describing our experience, I will let my pictures and blog posts do the talking. Below is a link to my Istanbul posts. There are 5 posts alltogether. Hope you enjoy them.

What wonderful pictures of IST. Been there, done that and would love to do it again. I even see some of my magnets that I brought home as small gifts for family. Are you a professional photographer?? If not maybe you should think about it!!! Ypou managed to capture all the sights, sites and perhaps even smells of the wonderful experience.Thanks..

Really fine pictures--you go beyond the standard tourist shots and get more into the soul of the place. I spent a week in Istanbul in late September and also loved it--much more than I expected to. I'm so glad to have discovered your blog and can't wait to get time to go through all your past posts.

thanks a lot everyone for your comments...

@kawh - yes the coffee is thick. If you are from the US, unlike the coffee you get in US, where the persone drinking the coffee adds the sugar. in Turkey, the person making the coffee adds the sugar. I blv you do that while making it.

@amer_can - no i am not a pro..would defenitely love be one.
@aprillilacs - glad you liked my blog.
