Kaffee klatsch

February 11, 2016

Cozy winter cafe meet ups — chocolate spoon and a table with a built-in heater. Leisurely Saturdays…

Breakfast = joy

February 8, 2016

Another perfect Turkish breakfast, followed by coffee… The balcony overlooks an orange tree orchard…

Gone fishing

February 4, 2016

You can buy fish and squid here and then take it to a nearby restaurant to have it cooked… So fresh and so delicious.

Settling in

February 1, 2016

You know you are really settled into a place when you have your own dentist, hair dresser, nail salon, church and favorite cafe! Cozy Antakya life. I arrived 4 months ago and it already feels so comfortable and homey. But also getting restless thinking– what could be next?

Juicing

January 27, 2016

After a hike, nothing is better than an avocado and banana smoothie, topped with ground pistachio…

Hibernation

January 20, 2016

In case of a security event that might require a lockdown, we all received a tote of survival items to keep in our apartments. (But we’ve already raided the mini-nutella packs…)

Feline

January 13, 2016

All the cats in the world must make their way to Turkey at some point. It’s a country full of cats and nowhere more so than in Istanbul… In beautiful Hagia Sofia, I found a napper peaceful keeping guard far beneath the majestic domes.

Kahvalti

January 11, 2016

New Yorkers have brunch, Turkish people have kahvalti. Turkish breakfast is one of the best weekend pastimes… Sleep in, get together with friends and get stuffed. Here are two options– gozleme (a kind of pancake) made fresh in Istanbul, and the remnants of an Antakya ‘village breakfast’.
