Izmir (Turkish: İzmir) is a big urban center in the western appendage of Anatolia and the 3rd most inhabited city in Turkey. Izmir metropolitan area broadens along the outlying waters of the Gulf of İzmir and inland to the north across Gediz River's delta, to the east along an alluvial plain made by many small streams and to a slenderly harder terrain in the south.

Bu satırları aşağıda gördüğünüz fotoğrafın çekildiği yerde yazıyorum. Söylediklerimle tutarlı olması için fotoğrafı gerçekten tam da oturduğum yerden çektim.
Yazıma başlamadan evvel bu koşulların gerçekleşmesine sağlayan Allah’a, evrene ve hayata teşekkür ederim, bir de vesile olan sevgili arkadaşım Yasemin Uyar’a teşekkür ederim. Eğer o sıkılıp izin almaya karar verip, tatile çıkmak isteyip beni dürtüklemeseydi, sonra da gerekli araştırmaları yapıp herşeyi organize etmeseydi ben de şu anda burada olmazdım :)
I've been living in Istanbul for almost 22 years now and it's such a shame that I've never spared the time to see these amazing historical structures till this weekend. A toughtful friend of mine planned our weekend and took me to - in the following order - Eminönü, Yeni camii, Spice market, Rüstem Paşa Mosque, Süleymaniye Mosque, Beyazıd, Nuruosmaniye Mosque, Grand Bazaar, Sultanahmet, Moseic Museum, the Basilica Cistern and Hagia Sophia.Despite the thirty plus celcius degrees in the week, weather in Istanbul this weekend was around 25 C degrees - a thunder storm happened on sunday afternoon, got soaked-in-water wet, totally worth it, better than sunburns.
I love watching pop music videos in different countries. Mostly because they're endearingly awful. This is one that I found while flipping through the channels at our hotel in Istanbul. It's somewhat amusing and thought I'd share, more for the cultural curiosities than anything else.
What's most interesting about this music video is what is NOT included. This video is an amusing "a la carte" take on western-style partying and hip-hop.In the West, hip-hop icons set the gold standard for partying as being generally boozy, sex-filled nights of reckless abandon, generally taking place at a trendy club and the primary agents being chauvanistic men with aviator shades, expensive clothing, sometimes jewlery, lots of swagger.

I've gotten a lot of questions about Turkish culture and society, so I thought I'd aggregate the information I've read and write a brief informative post about Turkey and the city I'll be living in, Alanya.

Snow by Orhan Pamuk
How I found this book: I learned about Orhan Pamuk when I came across an article in the New York Times about a Turkish author who had written a book about a museum and was now planning to start a real museum based on the museum in his book. Since reading that article, I began noticing Orhan Pamuk's name everywhere.
He walked through to a hall with pictures of roosters on the walls; in the centre of the hall was a small cock fighting ring. At this moment Ka realised he was in love with İpek. And, sensing that this love would determine the rest of his life, he was filled with dread.
Yesterday, I finished Snow, a novel by Turkish winner of…
