That red and white umbrella looks so familiar......are they selling the Turkish ice cream? it's quiet popular here in Singapore.

Bonjour dear Gattina,
Beautiful places in Istanbul, interesting and important thing I guess a woman need to be prepared with something to cover the hair! :)

I love how the woman in the last picture her scarf and her purse are the same printed material. Very pretty!

A cruise on the Bosporus sounds like an exciting adventure (even though some of the people in the photo don't look too excited to be on the boat!).


Red is the color of cherries, not cheese;
Yellow the backs of the sweet honeybees;

Red the fair hair of the Derry Town maid;
Yellow the yolk of the brown egg fresh-laid;

Red are the wounds of the sun going down;
Yellow the daisies beloved by the clown;

Rainbows of colors, delighting the eye—
Yellow and scarlet for this lullaby.

Istambul,Konstantinopel or Myklagard as the old Vikings called the city, is the most fascinating place I've ever visited.
I just know I have to go back. Hopefully politics will come at ease, so one can move about alone, or family wise.
I so disliked being on a bus tour,never getting time enough to study the many places of historic and artistic value.
We did, however take the ferry over Bosporus and get a stamp in our passports, to prove we had been in Asia.

Even if it's Ruby Tuesday, I most of all admire the woman with the silk scarves and matching bag. There are nuances of red in the mainly blue and turquoise pattern.
Thanks for bringing back good memories and adding new.

Lots of red in the pictures! And most of the women wear scarves on a hot day.

After reading your comment, I turned to my hubby and yell ,"Why can't you be a fan of Formular 1 so I am not dumped very often!"

Red seems to be a favourite colour in Istanbul!

I wonder if those headscarves are hot, or if in fact, they keep you cool in the sun?
