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. If you were born here, this doesn't make you an Istanbul expert neither.

You have to get to know Istanbul slowly, day by day, page by page, neighbourhood by neighbourhood. This is actually very difficult because neighbourhoods are…

Countdown.....to a Farewell!

All things come to an end. Also staying in Istanbul. My visit here might finish sooner as I expected, but anyways I have a few months left.

I'm not saying goodbye quite yet, but I am turning to you with a question:

What should one see/experience after living in Istanbul/Turkey for about 4 years? 

I've been here for about 3 and a half years and I've seen and lived a lot, but there are still many things I want to see/do and probably many things I don't even know they exist.

So where should I go and what should I do/see there?
Please, Sultanahmet and Taksim don't really count anymore, as I've seen it many many times. And a have about 6 months.
