Invisible Istanbul

The invisible city through the eyes of a resident. Inspired by the city of Phyllis, from Italo Calvinho's Invisible cities: %u201CSoon the city fades before your eyes, the rose windows are expunged, the statues on the corbels, the domes. Like all of Phyllis's inhabitants, you follow zigzag lines from one street to another, you distinguish the patches of sunlight from the patches of shade, a door here, a stairway there, a bench where you can put down your basket, a hole where your foot stumbles if you are not careful. All the rest of the city is invisible."

When my husband and I tell locals in Istanbul that we moved here from Australia the inevitable response is 'deli misin?!' 'Are you crazy?'...well maybe just a little...but there are so many things to love about this place. Come on over and read about us making our life in Turkey and see some pictures of this beautiful city.

Beykoz im the Nanny

I moved to Istanbul Feb 2, 2010 as an AuPair contracted for one year in a Turkish home in Beykoz on the Asian side. My blog is nothing more then my insights, experiences, and perhaps an exaggerated adventure or two. My purpose in writing is equally to preserve my own memories as it is to update my loved ones on my doings. Perhaps you may glean some minor insight or amusement from my musings yourself. Dig in!
