As I continue to research and read about Turkey and Istanbul, I’m constantly being drawn to more resources. The newest is a magazine called Cornucopia which is dedicated specifically to anything Turkish. They only release three issues per year, so I am not going to subscribe considering I’m hoping to go to Istanbul in just a couple of months. But you can order old issues, which I thought might be fun. So I was just browsing through them when I found one titled, “The Connosseur’s Guide to Istanbul.” It was printed in 2004, so a bit outdated, but I thought I’d order it just to check it out. However, imagine my surprise to find out that this one particular edition costs….wait for it…$796!!!!!! HOLY CRAP!
So basically, I can read this edition or I can actually GO to Istanbul. Think I’ll stick with the trip.
