Istanbul on Christmas Day

                         In front of the Blue Mosque and fountain
                                      Hagia Sophia
                                      Blue Mosque
                        Palatium Cafe and Restaurant-definitely coming back!
                                   Lamb Chops were awesome

I was excited to head back to Istanbul on Christmas Day as our Christmas Eve in Budapest was a total deb. :( It was a quiet Christmas evening and there were hints of Christmas spirit, even though it's not celebrated here. We ate dinner at a cozy spot called Palatium Cafe (across the street from the Four Seasons hotel). They had Christmas decorations decked out for the tourists and service was great. The place is super chill with people laying out on beanbag chairs (covered in traditional Kilim) smoking nargile and enjoying good food and drinks. I couldn't have asked for a better Christmas setting. Took some dope pics of the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia too. 
Pin It Now!
