Three weeks in Istanbul, Turkey finally came to an end this past weekend! What I have to show for it: a full stomach, 1,000+ photos, a few leftover liras, and a heck-of a memorable page on my passport.
I am not quite sure how I will sort through so many photos, but hopefully I will be able to pick the few that reflect different aspects of my trip the best.
Here, I have chosen one of the hundreds of flags I saw all over intensely nationalist Turkey. This one hung from the entrance to the Hagia Sophia.

Ahh, just realizing that a third of the summer is gone! Here’s to what was a perfect beginning to everything summertime: Princeton reunions.

I scream for ice cream! (Actually, I scream for someone to come give me a napkin.)
Nothing says summer like a big scoop of ice cream on a hot day in the city. We found Mitchell’s Ice Cream a few blocks away, not realizing until we got there that it is San Francisco staple. The line crowded the entire block—there must have been at least 25 people in front of us. The wait was totally worth it once I had some sweet coconut and grasshopper pie (mint chocolate chip with oreos and fudge) in hand. And by that I mean, in a waffle cone perfectly coated in a chocolate shell.
The only glitch? It melted super fast. The upside? I had a very good excuse to eat all up quick!

Dog day afternoon!
Babysitting Pancho, the sassiest little chihuahua in San Francisco, turned into quite the adventure around the Mission. N and I trekked up and down hilly streets all the way to Tartine (with a couple pit stops at various trees/piles of dog shit for Panchito). The morning bun had hints of cinnamon and orange zest and the gregoire was filled with cheesy yumminess (more specifically, gruyere, pepper, and thyme). We took our goodies over to Dolores Park, while Pancho ran around in all his morning glory :).
