"i'm not a invisible. i'm sort of just hidden. like a chameleon, but without the taste for insects." - elizabeth crane, when the messenger is hot
"why was fabulousness important? the world was a scary, sad place and adornment was one of the only ways she knew to make herself and the people around her forget their troubles." - francesca lia block, necklace of kisses
another street cat! our last day in istanbul we took the ferry (an expensive one! 3 whole TL per person!) to the princes' islands. it's where istanbulians have their fancy summer homes. there are no cars allowed on the islands, so there's lots of bikes (which were being guarded by this cat) and horsedrawn carrages and apparently a donkey but we didn't see it. it was really nice and quaint without being too touristy. it seemed like even though it was a resort place, it catered to turks instead of international tourists.
