'There is a historical mosque just near the bridge, which makes a great scene and [the] baked potato, kumpir, is very popular,' he says. He describes Istanbul as a vibrant, busy and diverse city. '[It is] expanding and growing each day, and the people living in Istanbul are from all over the country,' he says.
