To my dear old British housemate who forced me to drink five cups of tea every day…
I think I’ve found the best place in the world to drink tea. I’m currently sipping on a hot glass of çay (as they call it here) in the gardens of Topkapi Palace in Istanbul, looking over the Bosphorus. Turkish tea is delicious (and served in such wonderful pots), but it’s the view that’s currently taking my breath away. Where else can you see Europe, Asia and one of the most beautiful harbours in the world? I think I’m going to enjoy living here.
