2. The third courtyard of Topkapi Palace. Forgo the long lines at the royal treasury and head to the library instead.
3. Cay or black tea. I like mine with two sugar cubes and some atmospheric fog.
4. A ferry ride. Bring a few squares of sugary, oozy baklava, your trenchcoat, and two ferry tokens (for the round trip).
5. The whirling dervishes. Maybe they could teach this former ballerina a trick or two.
