Cay, Istanbul


Cay, originally uploaded by - di.

Anyone who has done Istanbul will recognise the glass cup immediately.

Anyone who has lived here will have probably consumed hundreds of glasses of the sweet more-ish tea.

I couldn't resist this snapshot.

Even before I read the text, only seeing the picture, I felt I was seeing the whole nation.

Am enjoying the snippets of your travels and impressions. You sound completely re-smitten.

Shashikiran, your comment stayed with me for days. Thank you.

It's an old-fashioned design, Van. I found it out on the Princes' Islands. Although Istanbul and etc does post-modernism perfectly well, it's the history, the preservation of, that attracts my camera everytime.

Sorry about that Lut. I had to just make myself sit down and do some work on transferring them, as I was without wifi in Istanbul.

Completely and absolutely resmitten for sure, chiefbiscuit. It was delightful :)
