My junior year of college, I did study abroad in Istanbul and it was the best decision I made in college (aside from perusing Tim when I thought I had no chance). And Istanbul’s nights for me are a cross between 80’s dance music, European DJ’s and a dance scene from Queer as Folk. It is hard to explain, but going into underground clubs from hidden streets makes time slow down. You’re dancing and your drinking and you’re flirting with the cute Turkish boy from the spice market… but its a slow motion video with muted sound and bright lights. Istanbul Nights are something you just have to experience for yourself.
