    Those gates are fabulous (as is the sea behind them) and I love the people watching. My sister-in-law brought us Turkish Delight after her trip to Istanbul – we all thought the rosewater flavor was far too intensely rose. It must be an acquired taste because clearly it’s everywhere there.

    What a gateway….to the sea! I almost feel as though I was at the market with you, what a lot of junk to get to the interesting stuff. It seems as though there is a LOT of abluting going on in that country, and the need for the pink saran wrap booties makes me wonder at a possible foot fetish in this country/city. The henna’d foot just tops it.
    It will be fun to see all of you back at the cave house. I loved that place!

    Oh, those abluters! Love the other comment about the possible foot fetish in Turkey.

    Your photographs are marvelous — so colorful and full of interesting STUFF. But the jamin tea baffles me — it just looks like a ball of STUFF.

  4. What a lavish place–from the food to the gates and everything in between.

  5. I found Istanbul a fascinating place – from the Bazaar to the mosques. So overwhelmingly colorful.

    Wow, that photo of the palace is breathtaking. Not that the bagged feet weren’t nice, it’s just, well, it strikes me that I’m digging myself a hole here.
