Istanbul - Today's Happiness Experiment entry

The illuminated water of the Basilica Cistern

Drinking tea in the rain with U whilst watching the shipping in Gulhane Park on Seraglio Point

Watching a bird flying around the minarets of the Blue Mosque at night

Talking Turkey - yesterday's Happiness Experiment entry

Flying over moored shipping off the coast of Istanbul

Hooking up by chance with Utku and his cousins for an evening of Turkish coffee, backgammon and hookah smoking

The piles of spices in the Spice Market
