We ventured first to Atasehir to meet with Asli. Joy and I were early, so we entertained ourselves at Migros, a supermarket chain. This just happened to be the biggest one we've ever seen. SCORE!
Space Jam reunion?
From there to Bagdat Street. It is one of the busy, hip places on the Asain side. There are a lot of restaurants and shops there. We walked up and down the street gazing in the shops and chatting.
The World Championships for Basketball are coming to Istanbul in September. Of course we had to pose by the giant basketball!
Finally we settled at a restaurant called Num Num.
The food was good. The drinks were great. The company was amazing.
