If you follow my other blog, The Epicurious Texan (shameless plug!), you know that recently I’ve been writing about Istanbul, which I think is one of the most beautiful and magical places on the planet.
The most intriguing thing about Istanbul is the intermingling of customs at an intersection of East meets West in a city divided by a river into continents.
This shot was taking right outside of the Mısır Çarşısı, Egyptian Spice Bazaar, looking out over the Bosphorus onto Europe…from Asia. See? Beautiful and magical.
