Turkish Delight

Amazing and hypnotic colors inspire new designs for me.  I am in love with the rich hues and intricate patterns.  They truly are fabulous expressions of Divine adoration.  Amazing to witness an entire mosque covered floor to ceiling with all this vibrancy.  The overall pattern may feel busy and disorientating here in these little snapshots, but I can assure you it is a much more meditative experience in person. 
The boys devoured their lunch of lamb and pita bread.  Joe and I really enjoyed the eggplant and zucchini dishes.  And of course, the baklava for desert is delicious.

Your food pictures make me want to go back. Istanbul was a family favorite. Between the shopping, food and sightseeing, the kids had a wonderful time.
