On Monday, I featured my favorite star in Istanbul. But then today, I saw this one. Now I have no idea which one I like better. 

We were at Akmerkez, a mall, looking for winter accessories that will go with my new coat. There are several stars within the mall but this one definitely caught my eye. Far away it just looks silvery-blue. But then close up, it features Istanbul landmarks. Look!

There's a mosque in that one, and in the one below, you can get a good view of the Bosphorus. We had to move really close to verify that it wasn't actually Sharpie that the artist used. This looks like Sharpie, doesn't it?

It's actually paint! And its title is "Istanbul'un Yıldızı," or "Star of Istanbul." I found the website where you can see pictures of all the stars. This one just happens to be first on the list. I think that means I have good taste? Anyway, I would highly recommend at least scrolling through them. Some are absolutely beautiful and others tend towards the cute. Now that I've seen them all, I would love to go find this one. It looks like a lot of fun. The location that it gives is apparently an 8-mile road, so I'll have to use my Nancy Drew skills to track it down. 

People, which star do you like better? Or do you like one from the website even more than either that I have photographed? To the comment section!
