Why do we like Istanbul?

06152006.jpg

This picture was taken nearly 10 days ago. It was a showery Thursday afternoon on the highway to Ataturk Airport. It doesn’t make sense to be stuck in traffic at that time. But you are stuck, you are late to meet your guest and you are frustrated. And then you ask why do I like this city?

    Erkan,
    Despite such moments as you described, aren’t there also times that you catch your breath and say “That’s why I love İstanbul”?

    (Upon Erkan’s post I tried to list why I love İstanbul and why hate her. But gave up soon-first because listing is something flat, I can’t convey emotions through lists mostly, and second because the reasons are my reasons and would mean little or none to others, especially when I am unable to convey my emotions.)
