1001 Faces of Istanbul

Istanbul...
... one of those places difficult to define. Some would call it 'capital of the World' or 'capital of the Empire', others 'cradle of cultures' and others 'the worst place to live'; ' hell on earth'.

I've spent more than 1001 days in this city and I still find it difficult to reply to a simple question: 'What is Istanbul like?' Maybe it's because I have been here too long and I've come to realise that there is no simple answer to this question. Istanbul has many faces, many nuances if you will. It is difficult to explain them to a total stranger or a person who has never visited the city. Even though you have visited the city once, you have probably lifted only one veil from its face.

Eelection madness 2015

 Volitve so tik pred vrati. Letošnje strankarske volitve bodo v nedeljo, 7. junija 2015. Intenzivna propaganda, mitingi, ipd. se odvija že 3 mesece. Delim samo kratek video, ki je bil posnet v Üsküdarju, na trgu, kjer imajo skoraj vse stranke že 3 mesece postavljene svoje reklamne in info točke. Na žalost sem video ugasnila prekmalu, saj sem zamudila plešoče in pojoče delavce na zadnji info točki. Tukaj pa še nekaj utrinkov lanskih predvolilnih kampanij: Tema meseca: Volitve.
