This week we had a first review in Istanbul. We worked very hard for the past week and a half to get some big ideas into some very large sheets of paper and explain our thinking and processes. It was a good kick off point for our design projects. But its the weekend and we needed to get a little funny. It started off with a good dinner of Corba and Chicken, Beef or Lamb wraps. Then for me personally, it was a celebration of sleep. Many of us are getting over a cold like sickness , while some of us are continuously sick.
Luckily the next day we took a little brunch trip to Besiktas. The cab dropped us off at the ferry station, where we had all been before. We walked up the plaza and through the restaurants to a shopping district that was full of clothing stores, a fish market where I bought amazing salmon fillet for only 7 Lira. We messed around at the ferry station and the guys even took turns getting in the canons.
