Saturday Snapshot 18

Hey, everyone! I hope you all have been doing great. I’ve been… well, I’ve had a tough week due to some problems with my job here. But it seems I have resolved everything so no more tears. And I’m sorry to be vague-blog but I really do think things are looking up!

So this week I barely took any photos- I think all of that Istanbul coverage (which you will see more of very soon!) wore me out photographically. Here are a few iPod-snapshots of what’s been going around in my adorable little town…

Photo A


Valentine’s Day is coming and all the florists are preparing their wares! The streets smell really, really good these days.

There were lots of blue skies this week, and I have to admit I’ve never felt like such a sun-worshipper… I swear I will never take good weather for granted again.

Photo C

I love this guy- he sits in the plaza everyday selling his Nutella crêpes and chatting with the townspeople, and wears a different hat everyday! (They’re all fabulous but my favorite is his cowboy hat. Yee-haw.)

So which photo do you like best this week? For more of my town check out my #OnlyIn feature with Jessica from Curiosity Travels!
