The streets of Istanbul are teeming with life and energy unlike anything I can put into words (but I tried-images are captioned). The culture is very much alive and can be experienced at every turn. Day-to-day life is fueled by tea and fresh fish from the Bosphorus.
I tend to think I will only visit a place once since there is a whole world to see. But I’m wrong this time. I’d go back again and again.
“If one had but a single glance to give the world, one should gaze on Istanbul.” -Alphonse de Lamartine
