We are slowly settling to the house and the routines of İstanbul. After some cleaning and finding suitable places to all the goodies we brought from Datca, we finally went to a small walk at the Bhosphorus. It was quite refreshing..Then hubby decided to make a favour and said 'let's buy some fish for dinner' As he hates the smell of the fish in the house, this was one of his ways to tell that he loves me. As the fishing season started as of September 1st, there were plenty of fish on the stalls. We decided on sea bass.Then as our habit in the long winter nights, he light all the candles in the house. I have to tell you that we are a big customer of tea light candles. Minimum of 20 per night. Also a big THANK YOU from here to Naturally Jules who gave me this very cute award. My award collection on the right side of my page keeps growing. Eveyone needs some magic from time to time..
I have gazed over you from a hill dear İstanbul!
I have not seen any place that I have not been and not liked.
Come and sit on the throne of my heart so long as I live!
To love only a piece of you is worth a life time.
Above are the words of the famous Turkish poet Yahya Kemal Bayatli. Very much reflected the love part of my feelings towards this city. I think I wrote before that I have a deep love and hate relation with this city. Wait till my experiences in the traffic to hear the hate part :))
