Here are a few food snaps of food around this vibrant and friendly city-
Fresh fish outside a restaurant
Traditional milk pudding
Macarons at a bakery
Fresh orange juice
Fresh fish sandwich we have had quite a few!!
A yogurt drink very popular here you will often see business men sipping this at lunch
Baklava oh wow I love this!!
Lambs heads now this is not for me I was speaking to an American who lives here so said the cheeks are good they also eat the brain!! And make a kebab with organ meats wrapped around the intestines it's good to use all the whole animal though I guess
busy street, there are so many cafes here
Ladies making traditional flat bread
Fruit growing outside balcony I like this tastes and looks like a white raspberry sold in the streets
