A week here now
As i walk around the city my mind is temporarily turned off.i walk and walk and record everything i see with my eyes and with my camera and with my ears. in fact i record every thing with all my senses,many other tourists here looking around with their large eyes.
A happy Japanese woman sits next to me in the metro.i ask her if she is enjoying the city,she replies yes with a big smile.
Last night i was out hunting for a nice restaurant,this looks fine,maybe next one will be better and so on,then i heard some music,the next restaurant was the place i was looking for some musicians were playing some very sweet Turkish music,I ordered my dinner and sat down in a daze just enjoying the wonderful musicians,specially the violin player.
Took some pictures too naturally,will publish them as soon as i can.....
My fourth day in Istanbul,weather still very nice,the people,the city all very very nice.
Been to Asian side yesterday,today I will just hung around Istanbul soaking in the atmosphere,will sit at a pavement cafe and do some people watching...
Day 5 in sunny and hot Istanbul,sat at the cafes,watched people walk around,eat some delicious food,looked at shops and watched some history.Few tour guides tried to show me around,watched the moon rise over the minarets of Istanbul,in the evening time...
There seems to be an internet cafe here in almost every street and they are very cheap,cost around 70 cents.
The cash machines accepts all the usual cards and you can withdraw dollars,euros or Turkish lira... Turkish music at a restaurants.
People rushing around as if there is no tomorrow..
