An Addled Moment

I left London in a frenzy to discover the beauties of the land my Parents told me I was from. I spoke the language and walked the walk but nevertheless not always accepted the taboos its culture offered me. I came to Istanbul to discover not only this beautiful city and its nightlife but I?m also here to discover myself. Born in Istanbul 1986, I moved to the UK 1989 with my family. I am now back as foreigner to see and feel this city and fulfil my addiction.

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."

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!
