lunch and hats

A fascinating morning in Istanbul walking along narrow streets lined with shops, full of colourful fabrics and ceramics. Crossed the Galata bridge from west to east and watched a fishing competition where they were barbecuing freshly caught fish. Lunch at "Homemade" where we had Turkish bread and dips - meze - for starters followed by tsitsi kebapi or clay pot lamb, cooked in clay pot and brought to the table on a dish with open flames. Gino the waiter charming and friendly, tipped contents onto plate before breaking pot to get everything out. Thought he'd broken it by mistake but he said it was intentional. The second waiter kindly gave me a hat on leaving. Lyn and Karen
