Beyoğlu is where the locals mix with the tourists who are in the know and don't camp down in Sultanahmet. How refreshing it was to be away from the tourist beat. Here in Beyoğlu the streets are full of cafes, apartments, hotels and concentrations of shops which all sell the same products ~ much like in Vietnam... and musicians (as this snap was in the music store street... the LED street just didn't have quite the same feel.)
If you drop your cutlery at this restaurant, another is always handy... if one is sitting outside at least...
At the bottom of the hill... the fish market and the famous fish sanger. A visit to the store below proved to be a delight... She is packing a box of honey free TD for Georgia.
