Good morning Istanbul πŸ™ŒπŸΎ
_______________________________________________________
The former Ottoman Empire’s capital city, Istanbul is a dynamic thriving metropolis of of an unexacting 15M to 20M people growing by day.  The city finds itself perfectly situated in Asia and Europe while connected by rail to the Middle East and less than 3 hours to many places in the northern hemisphere.  It’s access to everywhere layered with a mix of dimly lit bars and cafes, a spattering of Michelin rated chefs in town on holiday, a wandering majority Muslim population spheres an underground scene that borders seedy and chic.  The cityβ€˜s veil of vibrant unfamiliar move-set sounds and liveliness by day are easily pierced as you head down one of many paths to find your niche.  A city that has alley upon alley of chaos noise and laughter from neighborhood to neighborhood calms itself at night but in a way that seems to fade until the day resets.  A sense of resurgence and lust layered with political unrest leaves the inhabitants thirsting for more, and more they create.  The hip neighborhoods of Karakoy and Kadikoy/Moda drive so much that is Istanbul, a new wave of cosmopolitan that doesn’t just give sound to English noise and subtly refreshes the soul.  The mix of people from all shades creates an attractiveness that leaves one curious.  Surrounded by water with the Black Sea to the north, Sea of Marmara to the south and split by the Bosphorus who help create the perfect backdrop.  Be cautious this city does suffer fools wisely. Keep your wits about you and trust your chaperones πŸ•ΊπŸΎ
