Till Next Time

I was very sad that this was my last day in Istanbul. After a week here, I was extremely charmed by the city & the locals. It's also fantastic to make new friends!

It was an awesome day in so many respects. Went to a hamam (a modern one & not a traditional one). Then off to van Gogh Alive [grandeexhibitions.com]. I actually walked in here by accident…I thought it was part of Istanbul Modern. But super cool…images were projected in a continuous loop on screens & paired with music. Just lovely.

Then next door to Istanbul Modern which is oh so cool! No photos unfortunately. But the art was just phenomenal & I really enjoyed my time here…glad that I saved it for last. Funny thing was that I kept running into Eva & Aleks, as they were both in the area!

Then back to Taksim Square & İstiklâl Caddesi. Then I had my fave fresh grilled fish sandwich with greens as I meandered across the Galata Köprüsü. I had a quick boo at the Yeni Cami (New Mosque) which was recommended by Eva & Aleks & loved it here.

Last thing was meeting Eva & Aleks for a dessert at Hafiz Mustafa again. And yes, they remembered me;0) Back to the hostel to pack & then a 3:30AM shuttle to start my trip home.

I had such an amazing time there & I have great memories of this trip. So until next time, I will have very fond memories of this outstanding city;0)
