Mmm Monday: Turkish Kokoreç

Please share a photo of your favorite delicacy by clicking Mr. Linky below. Thank you.

Location: Istanbul, Turkey

Kokoreç or Kokoretsi is a popular street food in Istanbul, Turkey. It’s seasoned lamb intestines roasted on a horizontal skewer as shown in the picture.

It may look unappetizing for the uninitiated but it actually tastes good if you don’t let your imagination go too far. Afiyet Olsun (Bon appétit).

Weekly Photo Challenge: Rise/Set

Istanbul Sunset
Location: Istanbul, Turkey

This picture was taken while cruising around the Bosphorus Straight. It was a beautiful sight. I couldn’t help myself singing a song from the Fiddler on the Roof:

Sunrise, sunset
Sunrise, sunset
Swiftly fly the years
One season following another
Laden with happiness and tears…

Now comes the question: Sunrise or sunset? Unless you took it yourself, it would be hard to tell. Sunrise and sunset are like two peas in a pod. It’s difficult to tell one from the other.

If you insist to know, though, I can give you a hint: I’m not a morning person.
