Istanbul “the city of love”
When I mentioned once to one of my friends that I was living in Istanbul, he immediately said “The city of love!” When I heard him saying that, I smiled and told him, “Yes.”
I remember the first time I went there, alone in the airplane. I can’t describe how happy I was, when I arrived, and got in the car, looking from the window at every side, so I don’t miss any view. It was huge, beautiful, and filled with so many people, that each one has a totally different story than the other.
When you talk about Istanbul, remember that you’re also talking about a huge civilization thousands of years ago, about people who lived with traditions that have persisted since ancient times, and about love stories that have always been like fiction and still are to this day.
Some people think that if they went there once or twice that they know everything about it, but you want me to tell you a secret? If you didn’t live, love and become friends with the Turkish people that live there you know nothing about neither Istanbul, nor Turkey.
