We’re not big buyers when we travel. Sure, maybe a Christmas ornament, an apron, maybe maybe a piece of art. We were in the Middle East, Turkey and England (Jim bought himself a coffee cup), gone a month, and we claimed less than $100 coming back into Canada. But, but… this one got away from me. At an outdoor cafe overlooking the Bosphorus in Istanbul, I fell in love with this beat up copper tea pot. They’re made by Demlik Teas, server Mustafa told me. I even saw them later in the Grand Bazaar. But did I get one? Nooooooo…. At least I have pretty pictures made even more gorgeous by our tea drinking neighbours at the next table.
