Merhaba...ISTANBUL (part2)

Merhaba Dolls and Gents !

this post is a continuation of the previous post, my Istanbul trip.
This time it's going to be all about gorgeous views, charming weather ( yes  cold is so my thing, but you already know that, don't you ? :D ) True it isn't my first time nor my second time in Istanbul , but it truly feels like you are back for the very first time, it feels like you are back.. Home. strange isn't it ?
 I feel like i belong there, that those streets recognize me, those birds and pigeons flying around the Blue Mosque are welcoming me home.

What makes it even more magical, is the green color, it's green even in winter, you can literally smell the Spring freshness in WINTER !!! it's cold, very cold, true, but still looks beautful and looks ALIVE !
In Istanbul , it's Tourists season every season. another proof of it's Magic and Charm ! you resist the cold for the love of its smell, its food, its music, its history ! Istanbul is the city that stands still against all odds !

some pictures i have taken with my sister, Im getting better at this photography thing, am i not? :)

Istanbul is also Nostalgia, memories, hope and the Future..

i found this very interesting... for some reason
this band is giving a live show on the TRAMWAY !!! place: Taksim

for some reason i thought this would symbolize light through the darkness, too philosophical?

Yep, thats ME :) 

Caffeine effect, forever and always :p
i know this looks very cliché, but i couldnt help take a pic of my starbucks beverage :p

yes, the sight of the last few bites breaks my heart too :p

 I know you know i hate cats so much, they don't scare me but they disgust me in a way, but here i am posting this series of photos that i will be calling "Safa and Istanbul Cats" . Want to know why? ok, well Safa my sister, LOVES cats adores them worships them, and everytime we travel esp in Istanbul she starts to looks for cats and follow them around, and they actually like her !!!! it's an "ew" moment for me but here i am posting their ew pictures :p  EW !

some pictures of last year's trip...too :p

they look like they are the addams family cats, ewwww ! arent they twins? O_o

thank god we're over with cats now :p
let's just take a look at some random turkishness :)
