A few scenes while out and about in Istanbul.
The beautiful sight of the everyday activity of fishing off bridges in Istanbul.Turkish bagels (simit) are crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside.YUM. Often times the bagels are covered in toasted sesame with that tiny hint of molasses. I’ve heard the locals eat smit (bagel) with feta cheese, olive oil and Turkish tea for breakfast, lunch or dinner. That sounds like the perfect trio! You can find simit at almost every street corner, sold by street vendors in Istanbul and towns around Turkey!
Street vendor selling roasted chestnuts (kestane kebab). Inexpensive finger food - texture like a baked potatoe with a sweet, nutty flavour.Delicious watermelon. Always a treat while walking around Istanbul.Delicious pomegranate juice - straight up or with orange juice added. Either way - very tasty! Always a line-up at these vendors.
