Istanbul is a wild, crazy, beautiful city, and many writers have spend long hours trying to describe the city, its residents, and their connection to the place. This is not my attempt to do that.
This is my ongoing exploration of the parts of this city that form the better part of my experiences living here, piecemeal, bit by random bit. There will be parts of Istanbul that are left out, but they’re not part of my Istanbul. Likewise, there will be parts that most folks’d never get to, or never consider a unique facet of this city. That’s ok. It’s a quirky city, and I’ve found quirky bits of it in my time living here.
Also, I’m not a purist, so posts may blur into “this is my Turkey” or or whatever floats my boat. We’ll just have to see. Exciting, no?
