Postcards from Istanbul

Istanbul

There are some sounds you can’t avoid in Istanbul. Taxis honking for one. Traffic is a problem here. After all Istanbul is one of the largest cities in the world. How seventeen million people get around here daily baffles me, particularly when the taxi drivers don’t seem to know a single street name. Inevitably they end up on a one way headed upstream. This is what the horns are for, eastern standoffs on the narrow cobble stone roads of Galata.

Feu d’Artifice

Paris

I haven’t felt too inclined to write here. Simply stated….it’s so hot in Paris I think my brain has been fried. Really, I can’t concentrate and my productivity level is at an all time low. I never thought I would wish for cooler weather, but these bright bright days have been burning me out. Don’t get me wrong though…I love a hot summer night.

Wardrobe Lessons

Paris

Soon to be twenty seven I would like to think I made a lot of progress in the art of getting dressed. I won’t tell you how to dress like a French girl, in fact I would never want to tell you how to dress at all. So what I will tell you instead is the things I have learned, done, collected, bought, thrown out, altered etc within my wardrobe that have made getting dressed much easier for me, and hopefully can for you too, no matter what style it is your going for.
