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.

Moje življenje v Turčiji....

Zakaj ravno Turčija? Kaj pa varnost? Kaj pa odnos do žensk? Jih spoštujejo? Ali je za ženske varno? Lahko potuješ sama? Kaj pa islam? Moraš nositi burko?? Ali moraš postati musliman, če se želiš poročiti v Turčiji? Ali je turščina težka? Ali Turki uporabljajo arabsko abecedo? 

To je samo nekaj vprašaj, ki so/ste mi jih zastavili že ničkolikokrat. Nekaj odgovorov si lahko preberete v spodnjih intervjujih oziroma mojih zapisih na drugih spletnih straneh.

Prijetno branje!
