This is my last entry on the topic of Istanbul for now. On our visit one month ago things were quiet and peaceful and everyone seemed relaxed. As we all know, this has changed meanwhile for many people. From my own point of view I can understand the claims of the protesters. During our short visit we experienced many different realities, possible points of views and living conditions. Still, I wish the trees in the Gezi Park will survive. Enjoy my pictures of an untroubled Istanbul.
Whenever you are in a foreign city just about everything is new and exiting. In the first few days you have this fresh view for the “extraordinary common”.
