Our late nights mean that we get up late as well. But there's really no reason to get up early on a Sunday in Istanbul! Nothing starts before 10 AM anyway...
Even at 11 it's still quite empty on Istiklal Caddesi.
Even the street dogs were just lying around - but then that's really all they every day!
One shop I really lie is KikiRiki. It has all the outrageous party fashions. Even my boyfriend found it amusing enough to go through all the 5 floors with me.
One of the other many, many shops that I always go to is the gigantic H&M. Yes, we have one at home, but everything is cheaper here of course.
Something we don't have in Switzerland is the Home department. They have really nice designs. Somebody bought 3sets of bed sheets!
I am very convinced that all those expensive designer polishes are totally overpriced. Cheap polish, that's where it's at!
Well, that's what the roof terrace on top of the hotel is for.
Then we had dinner at the Ficcin restaurant around the corner - it was a day of short distances.There was still a part of the street we hadn't shopped yet.
Olivier aka Mister "I don't need anything" got two pairs of trousers at Mango. But all the pants I troed on seemed to be in children sizes...
Down by the Tünnel station.
