Parkin’ on the highway

Because I have been having a busy week, I could not write before. Although this has become a bit of old news now I would still like to refer to a protest demonstration that took place in Çağlayan Square last Sunday. It was pro-Islamist Saadet Party’s take on Danish cartoons. In fact, I am not interested in commenting on the event itself but its impact on non-demonstrators: This not too finely taken picture is from the highway that passes through the Çağlayan Square. Those cars and vans in the opposite lanes are parked in the highway. A queue of parked buses follows those. Because there were fewer lanes for the ongoing traffic, a three minute passage lasted more than half an hour. Anyway, I am just asking myself and those concerned ones: Can you imagine parking your vehicle on the highway?
