And now, to Istanbul

To leave you on a high note for the week, check out these benches from Istanbul.

Here's a shot from Flickr, too.

The city has place the book benches around to promote reading, and there are poems from 18 famous Turkish poets on them.


Now, how long before the libraries start to leave post-its on the benches? "Get this poem and so much more, for free, at the library!"

O yea, these benches are the best. I dont know how it would look in the back garden but in a kids park right at home. Great idea.
Can you think of what other things they could put on them ?
