Summer goodies.


Now that summer is here, even though it’s not that obvious when you look out your window and see the rain we’ve been having for the last few days, enjoying the sun on the terrasse of a cafe or going on a cruise on the Bosphorus is obligatory.
When I think Summer I think; holidays, sun, sun burnt, sun tan, sea&beach, watermelon and cherry.
So happy chappy as I am, as soon as I see the first ray of sun I run down to my local grocery shop to buy my favourite fruits (watermelon, cantaloupe..). Arnavutkoy is blessed with one of the best fruit & veggie shop in the city. Kolaylar import fruits and vegetables from all over the world. It sounds like heaven on earth until you face the bill.
I was uber shocked to have to pay 1.5YTL per KG for my watermelon and I had to snob the melon who was a whooping 4YTL a KG!
I understand that some suburbs have higher prices but sometimes I really have the feeling they think consumers are dumb.

    It’s cherry time… And the gardens in Polenezköy are full of cherry trees! It’s a pleasure to watch them…and to eat them!
    If I remember correctly there is even a cherry festival this week in Polonezköy!
    And to sit under the cherry trees in the coffee house in Yeniköy, Yeniköy Kahvesi, is a delight.
