Good Morning from Istanbul

December 5, 2011

Morning Lovelies! I made it to Istanbul!! I actually landed yesterday and have been out and about since then. To say I’m TIRED is an understatement.  Like I really could be sleeping right now but who goes to Istanbul to sleep?

I’m headed out shortly to indulge in everything that is the Grand Bazaar!!!! I can’t wait! Well I can wait a bit because I’m starving and this place attracts anywhere from 250,000 – 400,000 people daily.  Yeah, I don’t wanna be Angry Black Girl in the Grand Bazaar. I’m already getting lots of stares just walking around.  Oh and they think my mom is Oprah. I have no idea why!

Alright, I’m off to find a croissant and this man! Fresh Pomegranate Juice? I’m in!

Oh and funny stories about my first night here that I have to share in a separate post.  But let me just say how I love connecting with people from different cultures and realizing we share many of the same experiences. We are ALL human and so much more alike than we are different. Shout out to Semra and Dess!

I think I had a glass every single day I was there. Unfortunately, they weren’t all good but at $2 I couldn’t really complain.
