Ayasofya’da Bir Gece

Seneler önce okuduğum bir kitabı veya izlediğim bir filmi tekrar okuyup izleyince bambaşka bir hikaye görüyorum.

Morning Coffee in Lisbon

Lisboetas have special ties with their coffee culture. They generally use robusta-arabica blends, which make coffee bitter and tough due to over roasted beans. Traditionally, the day starts with “galao” at breakfast, espresso with steamed milk. After launch, Lisboetas seek for “bica”, Portuguese espresso.
