I think it was Pomegranath season, I had a big glass of Pomegranath juice every day. We bought a lot of good food, Baklavas and wine and had a picnic on our hotel roof. Picture this with the sound of muslim prayers from minarets around the city. We had a very good view over the city (or a part of it. Istanbul's population is about 12.000.000 persons! My whole country's population, Sweden, is 9.000.000).
I've found two paper related blogs that I like a lot. The first one is Edizioni who make fantastic little books (I saw that Book by its cover blogged about it the other day), and the second one is Little Paper Bird who does amazing things with paper.
