Sunday in Taksim - the heart of Istanbul
Then we walked along the busiest street in Istanbul - Istikklar Street and looked how it is getting ready for New Year's Eve ( personally I call it Christmas preparations :D ).Stepped by in St. Ann's Chuch - a very cosy catholical church ( if you are in Istanbul next weekend, come to listen to Christmas carols in the evening!) And of course we did some window shopping and later on drank some coffee in one of the best coffee places in Turkey - Gloria Jean's Coffee.Couldn't miss going to fresh fish market although it was so small. Most probably because of cool weather. And went to buy some vanilla sticks in a tiny spice shop. Saw some spices that I hadn't even heard before! One thing was true - you live and learn!!!
Here's the Christmas Tree being decorated... I bet it looks gorgeous late in the evening!
Have a peaceful Christmas time!!!
