Istanbul, Turkey. Nearly made it there, but left the ship to spend more time in Mykonos with Chris. Wise choice, but I was a little sad to miss Istanbul... especially the bazaar. I love the colors and textures of handicrafts from around the world!

Baklava, Istanbul that is one tall baklava. Layers of thin pastries, honey, nuts, and something else... but usually severed in the states about 4" tall. Wow!

Istanbul's Best Coffee Shop - Kurukahveci Mehmet Efendi, the phenomenal 141-year-old Turkish coffee purveyor, is located in a weather-beaten deco building just outside of Istanbul's Spice Market. Through its street-front window, thousands of brown wax-paper packets of freshly ground coffee are sold each day. The beans are roasted on the premises and then ground as finely as cake flour in belt-driven mills that chug away from morning to night.
