Harry Potter and the Sultan’s Hamam, and Other Things Seen In Istanbul

During my wanderings around Istanbul, I’ve taken pictures of things that don’t necessarily fit neatly into a day’s adventure. But they are united in their quirkiness. So here are a few of them.

Pissy is Closed – I don’t know what they sold. Clothes? Toilets? Attitude? Pints of beer?

Image

Fast Like Bulls – Pizza Bull is a local pizza chain. We tried it one night. It was okay. They sell pizzas named after cities in the U.S: Los Angles, Chicago, Orlando, New York, Seattle, etc. For some reason the Houston pizza is vegetarian.

Burger King Delivers – BK will deliver to your home here in Istanbul via scooter.

Image

“Sex O’Clock” – It’s always time to “play” on this clock.

Image

Wolverine Kebabs – Here Wolverine puts his special talons to a more practical use.

Harry Potter and the Sultan’s Hamam – Why shouldn’t Harry Potter have an adventure in Istanbul?

  1. How’s this for the title of your new book: Turkey quirky? Hilarious that the Houston pizza is vegetarian.

  2. Great pizza names –

    Insightful post on location and cultural symbols and context!!

  3. Wolverine’s drawing is pure gold.

  4. Why do they torture poor old Harry like that? Any clue?
