One of the things, this American has struggled with by moving to Europe is ice with my drinks. No matter how cold it is outside, or how cold a drink is, I need to have tons of ice and lemon with my water. The waiters more often than not argue with with me that the drink already is cold, but it falls on deaf ears. Most of the refrigerators in the States come with an ice maker. Not here, much smaller and no ice maker. Oh well things could be worse.
This photo was taken on the Asian side of the Bosphorus in Istanbul. If you look carefully under the lens, you will see the upside down reflection of our boat. For me one of my favorite things to do in most European cities is to take a boat road and catch the beautiful unobstructed views of the land. So next time in Istanbul, take the boat from the European side to the Asian side. It is the only city in the world based in two continents.
I admit, I have a pretty hard rule of not posting food photos on Instagram, but my lemon water doesn’t really fall in that category.
