A Perfect Sunday

Standard

We spent the day with my friend Neslihan and her husband, Emre. They spoiled us with a beautiful Turkish breakfast, consisting of 5 types of cheeses, tomatoes, cucumbers, parsley, an assortment of fruits and nuts, homemade jam, honey, nutella and omelettes. There was a constant flow of tea, and no shortage of humorous and interesting conversation. We spent two hours talking and savoring this breakfast feast. Afterwards, Neslihan hosted a special Turkish coffee lesson for Caglayan and I to perfect our skills. Following one indulgence after another, we walked along the Bosphorus road, took in the sunshine and discovered an outdoor cafe hanging over the water.  We sipped chai at the Bosphorus Cafe as boats passed at every speed and direction, chickens wandered by our feet and people  marvelled at this special, allbeit bizarre cafe and its incredible location. It was a fun and relaxing Sunday in Istanbul…
