Aghia Sofia, Istanbul

Istanbul is chaotic, exotic, hot, full of contradictions and… filled with red roses. Beds of them brighten up every park, adorn every historical site, line the congested roads and stand in pots outside restaurants.

It’s hard to feel stressed surrounded by red roses, which maybe explains why the 16 million people who call Istanbul home seem pretty laid back (unless they’re trying to sell you a carpet).
