Olivia, my wife and I just watched a film, three days ago, by the name of "Spice" which takes place in Istanbul. Now I found that you have created a DP and joined the DP community. Watching your photos brings even closer to the life of Istanbul that was shown to us a few days ago. I welcome you and wish you very long ride.

Thanks for adding more 'spice' to the Daily Photo Cities around the world.
