Known as an Islak Burger to locals, these notorious late night snacks are simply burgers that have been marinated in tomato sauces to be well, wet. I of course had one for breakfast. One bite and I was hooked. It might be the tastiest thing I've had in this country. As I walked and ate, I came across another place selling these. I had ...

We got in last night after a very comfortable flight; they repatriate you on Business, possibly the last we will fly... We are staying in hotel in the old city, good for tourism but not looking forward ...
