Flower Shops in Istanbul
Ben and I spent the last week adventuring about Istanbul, and as we wandered down Istiklal Street we searched high and low for the rumored flower passage. An alley brimming with flowers failed to present itself; it seems that the flower shops have been replaced with pubs. However, we did come across several adorable flower shops scattered along the street. I wish I could bring a bundle of the gorgeous ranunculus home with me!
