Walking out of the Spice market…
fresh from the grill…

Walking around Galata Tower, on a soulful little street (Serdar-Ekrem Cd), where the new generation of Designers are establishing their windows… refurbishing old buildings while giving a trendy feeling in the air…

the colors, the smells… but also the sounds, the voices…
morning… view from my apartment…

It’s ‘Apple Grenade’s (pomegranate) juicy season! It is full of anti-oxidants, and it is such a healthy way to quench my afternoon thirst, so I drink one almost everyday. It tastes sweet and sour, reminding me those candies i one day used to love…
