We got watermelon with breakfast most days–peaches, sweet melon, grapes, and/or figs, too, if we were really lucky.

Figs for lunch! (On the beach at Iztuzu, near Dalyan, on the Mediterranean.)

If you are in Istanbul at the right time of year (i.e., now), look for this guy on the main drag just south of the Blue Mosque. His pomegranate juice is only 5 Turkish lira (about $3; other vendors were charging twice that). Pure pomegranate juice is so intensely delicious it makes your tastebuds explode.

    I wonder if you can ever get local figs in the northeast US. Doubtful 🙁

Hi! I'm Camille. I only write stories that could never ever happen in real life, though I do believe in real-life magic. If we were in the same room I'd fix you a cup of tea, but for now we'll have to settle for a virtual connection. I'm really glad you're here.
