Daily Wanderlust: Sunset in Istanbul

Written by on April 2, 2012 in Destinations - 2 Comments

There is something magical about Istanbul. It’s mix of east-meets-west. The way the old merges with the new. The corn vendors on the side of the road, even at high noon on a hot summer day.

I spent weeks in the city, playing tourist, relaxing, searching desperately for air-con when the summer heat became unbearable.

I particularly loved the view along the Bosphorus, the way Taksim, at sunset, twinkled against the pinkish night sky.
