Once upon a time, not so long ago I decided to move to Istanbul to get my MBA at BAU University. Perhaps that decision was made with the rash, happy-go-lucky attitude of a child. So for practical (read: financial) purposes I duly stayed in the Netherlands. However I will get a taste coming weekend of what it is like in former Constantinople while the boyfriend will get his eye laser treatment. (For Dutch people it is cheaper to take two 4 hour flights, stay in a 4* hotel for three nights, and get the most advanced eye laser treatment in Istanbul than to get it done here..)

While I will of course be the sweetest, most caring girlfriend on earth, we must see something from the city. What do you recommend, besides the overly touristy things that we will of course enjoy, photograph and subsequently bore our friends with.

Let me know,
