yeniköy through a window
I've been stuck at home since I got back from Beirut with a nasty cold, waiting to get well enough to go outside to sketch. Yesterday I went out only to sit inside, it was just too cold. I drew this through the window of a café in Yeniköy.
Here's a great cold remedy:
Squeeze the juice and pulp of one lemon into a mug.
Add one teaspoon of honey and a pinch of cayenne pepper.
Pour boiling water into the mug and sip slowly.
I love this concoction and will drink it even if I'm not coming down with something. I've also simmered grated ginger in water and used the liquid instead of the plain water. It adds a great kick and makes you feel all warm inside.
