Various photos from around Istanbul, including some of the many cats that roam freely (and happily) around the city. Dogs seem to roam free as well. Also some nice photos of
food served up at various establishments, along with a stroll through the old Jewish Quarter.
This is a video of our lunch being prepared at a local restaurant. The dish, which is featured in may cafes, is called “Testi Kebab”.
It consists of a stew cooked in a special clay pot that's roasted in a hot coal fire, then hacked open by breaking the pot with a big knife to get at the goodies. Delicious! ‘
