great photos Mitasis, it is obvious you have travelled off the beaten track and mingled amongst the population of Istanbul, which is far better then sticking to the tourist attractions.

Did you feel like a complete stranger or did you feel somewhat at home? Also I see you noticed quite a few young ladies smoking :) is it the same in Greece or has being a member of the EU for some time now changed old habits of the people?

I would be happy for your feed back.

thanks in advance.

I could say that i mostly felt like home, we have a lot of similarities (and differences of course) but most the people I met were really warm!

For smoking... I'm afraid that being a member of EU the last 26 years hasnt changed at all the smoking habit, especially for young people and especially for young ladies!

Thanks mitasis.

A friend of mine went on a tour to Greece last year and his impressions were that Greek people are really charming and friendly people and that he felt quite comfortable in Greece.

About the smoking issue; oh well so much for my hopes that if we ever become an EU member people would more readily quit smoking due to EU regulations :)

One of the best pictorial presentations of the city of the three empires EVER POSTED IN THIS FORUM!!!

There are many corners that look familiar in Istanbul. Especially this one:

Do you call these "Simit" or something? This is one of the most familiar images you may find in Athens and all the bakery stores in Athens prepare these kinds of bread :yes:. Very familiar...

Amazing city BTW...
