Istanbul – Persian Squirrel Twitch
So, if you are in Istanbul with a long layover, or no desire to brave the crowds at the Topkapi Museum, then why not go find a Persian Squirrel! When I looked for Persian Squirrels in Akseki in Turkey I was almost arrested (on suspicion of looting the local cemetry). This sounds a much easier propostion.
