Setting things straight.

There is a common misconception about Turkey and Istanbul that I would like to straighten out.
Every time I speak to a foreigner that hears I live in Istanbul I get the classical “Ohhh the weather must be so hot there right now..”.
No, it isn’t. Turkey is hardly a tropical country. Istanbul is hardly a tropical island. We’ve had a great summer which I’d say lasted long but now it’s over. You can feel the colds sneaking on people and you can hear the runny noses all day long at the office. In my team we already have 6 members contaminated with the flu including myself. This is what kind of hot weather we’re getting. It’s getting very cold and rainy. The winter has started and we’ll be expecting snow storms soon. So if you thought that Istanbul or Turkey is hot all around the year, you were wrong, it isn’t.
Please welcome the flu, the cold, the mud, the rain, the snow, the storms with me. Please welcome winter in Istanbul.
