I was so sure that I would find a new place with the same view but with a little more luxury ( a proper heating system perhaps?) when I decided to move my place 2 months ago. Well, I couldn’t. Although I offered the double of what I pay here, I couldn’t. It seems like Cihangir and Galata have become one of the most popular spots of Der Saadet(1) while I’ve been partying and chilling out in front of this exciting view which is 1000+ years old. The funny thing is, people used to be afraid of this area when I first moved here because of its bad reputation. Now they ask for astronomical rents for totally fucked up places just because they have sea view if you lean from toilet window and look left.
(1) Der Saadet: According to me, it’s the best known name of istanbul. it sounds so… err hedonistic :)
