Working Wednesday in Istanbul!

November 13, 2013

Dear Family and Friends,

I hope you are well. Today was a really nice day. I’m enjoying Istanbul and find the people to be really cool and not too fancy. I woke up early and took the Metro to the first mall. 20131113_095548The metro is very easy to use and a few of the malls are even connected to the Metro stations, which is Wonderful! I arrived at the mall at 8:30, but it didn’t open until ten so I went to a small cafe for breakfast. It was a really local place, and I ate and drank tea and watched people walk in and out and sometimes eat there. 20131113_150701After that, I got a significant amount of work done at three different malls. At one mall, security approached me almost immediately, but then after wasting some time they said I was okay. I had to explain to them why I was writing. For lunch I ate at the food court in the mall and it was Excellent. A portion of chicken and salad bar with all sorts of pickled vegetables.

After work I met back up with my mom and we went to find a dinner place. 20131113_201214We didn’t go to the restaurant we had initially wanted to visit, but we went to an amazing place that was a suggestion from one of the men who worked in a clothing store we happened to stop in to. We had passed that restaurant last night, but didn’t go in! It didn’t look great from the outside. We shared a mixed kabab plate. I think we are going to go back and get some chicken baked in salt. It seemed to be the specialty. Tomorrow I have some meetings! My mom is going to go on an Eating and Walking tour of the old city.

Love, Annie
