      • A City Of Crossroads
      • Samantha's Istanbul Day
        Ayasofya (Hagia Sophia) • Süleymaniye Camii • Suleymaniye Hammam • Ortakoy • 360 İstanbul • İstiklal Caddesi & Sidestreets • I would stay at: Hotel Ararat
      • While in Istanbul, a visit to a Turkish Bath is a must! I should note that I didn't find the massage entirely relaxing - you're laying on hard marble, so having my ribcage and hip bones pressed into the slabs wasn't ideal - but it's a really interesting experience, and when they first cover you in soap, it feels like you're lying under a cloud (a super cool feeling). The Tellaks (male masseuses) have this down to a science, and work very quickly.

      • Samantha's Buenos Aires Day
        Brunch at Oui Oui • Shopping in Palermo Viejo • El Ateneo • La Recoleta Cemetery • More shopping in Recoleta • Dinner at La Cabrera • Drinks at 878 (OchoSieteOcho) • Drinks at Milion • Mondays: La Bomba del Tiempo • Wednesdays: Terrazas del Este • Saturdays: Crobar • I would stay at: Palermo or Recoleta
      • More shopping in Recoleta

      • Recoleta is the Upper East Side of Buenos Aires - the wealthy have put down roots here, and so it's also spotted with great shops. Some of my favorite haunts here include: De Maria on Libertad (shoes), Salsipuedes across the street (clothes), and Humawaca on Posadas (bags). If you miss the mall scene, Patio Bullrich on Posadas is beautiful and has a lot to offer.
