Istanbul Fruit Market

I hope this painting of a fruit market in Istanbul looks good enough to eat. Istanbul was the first stop of our three-week guided tour of Turkey in 2012. The city is overflowing with amazing tourist sites such as the Blue Mosque, the Topkapi Palace and the Grand Bazaar. Istanbul is the only city in the world that sits in two continents. The Kadikoy Market we visited is on the Asian side of the city a half hour ferry ride from the European side. There we found food shops, spice shops, and fish shops. Walking through the markets made us so hungry! Luckily, we finished our visit by heading for a delicious lunch and a stop for tea at Camlica Hill, one of the highest spots in the city.
