istanbul, turkey - mosque gawking after brunch

Istanbul is a city on the water, covered in graffiti, run by stray dogs, with stunning architecture, that takes brunch extremely seriously. Istanbul is a city with which I'm stupidly in love.

Istanbul is a brunch town. The best brunch we had was at Journey, and it was so good we went back and had it all over again a few days later. That mushroom and egg skillet dish was unbelievable.
