… you should visit this places! Yeah! I have some insider tips for you!
This is the Istiklal Street with many Shops, Restaurants, Cafes, Bars and more. It’s always full, but not in this photo, cause I took this photo in the morning. But for me… it’s interesting to see this street without the crowd, haha!
So if you are in Taksim walk down from the Taksim Square, walk down and also pass the Galatasaray College, till this street (it must be in the right side):
when you go through this street you will find many Shops with clothes for veeeeery cheap prices! Trust me, I’m also buying my clothes there.. for just 5 turkish lira!
Now, when you walk down the Istiklal Street again, on the right side you will see the Cafe/Restaurant ‘ADA’. It’s a cafe/bar/restaurant with a bookstore, and also cats inside! If you cannot read turkish, noooo panic, they’re also english books!
And now.. walk more down till the end of the Istiklal Street, now there is another street thats drop away, the Tunnel street. I love it there, even if it’s always full I really want to live there.. but it’s so fucking expensive -_-!
You will see many Shops and Vitamine Bars there, I love eating fruits there! In the end of the tunnel street, when you turn right you will see the Galata Tower.
This is the Lavazza Cafe directly in front of the Galata Tower. I often drink espresso coffee there.. and I feel happy when I sit there and see that huge Galata building in front of me!
Of course today in the morning, after camping in the Gezi Park, I went to this cafe to drink my morning coffee… and of course reading… hmmm soooo relaxing… I love Taksim in the morning!
Tutto è bene ciò che finisce bene!
Wow, I never thought that the protest will take that long, and that things will turn out like this, I’m impressed! And of course I also attended to the Gezi Park in Taksim, yeah I’m one of the protester! I’m happy that I was able to see this, I never thought people could be so strong. People don’t know their real strenght. If people work together, they can do everything!
Yesterday we camped in the Gezi Park, it was the first time I camped in Turkey! Wow! Bur you know.. I’m very tired now. Maybe I just need to acclimatize ‘sleeping outside’, and I need to do this more often. Let’s see.
Here are some photos from the last days, and.. you will see that there are mostly young people. This is what I noticed, and it gives me hope! Hope that people will find the right way to live.. maybe not now, but after some years.. maybe I will not see it, but I hope the other generation will see it, that humanity will see it, and finally learn to live in peace.
Yeah, this is what I hope. Someday.
‘Tears will not fall without a reason.’ <— lol hope my translation is right.
#gezikütüphanesi means gezi-library, yeah they really built a small library in the middle of the park. Food is also free, and the people are cleaning the park by their own, .. wow!
