Turkey Vacation - day 9: even more of Istanbul

Today was Christine's last day in Turkey...back to Moldova...

2nd to last Turkish breakfast!

I had the Borek with spinach...pretty good!

But my fave was the traditional salep! 

It's super thick, like sweetened condensed milk, but not as sweet, but still sweet enough, and hot and mixed with cinnamon and oooooooooo soooooooooo gooooooooood!!!!!!

One of the things I'm going to miss about Turkey is how they treat their strays. They treat them with love and respect. They're all well fed and are not afraid of people.They come up to you and just want to be loved. Right when you start petting them they just start closing their eyes in sweet bliss! Below are 3 dogs curled up still not having woken to the day.

Across from the dogs was what we called "Cat Island". We counted about 15 cats there!

Again, super friendly and love to be loved!

Hilarious mannequin!

Last dinner in Turkey - I went Italian - gnocchi with shrimp and calamari! DELICIOUS!
