limonlu bahce


tosbaga.jpgthe long expected “hottest summer of the century” has not arrived yet, but we still pretend to be having it awesomely hot and look for shady places to go to. here is an option: go to limonlu bahce and feed the turtles. (i know most of the locals have been there, done that. i am serving the guests here). it is extremely nice and relaxing at noon time, with almost no guests. the so-called “first chill out zone in the middle of the city” or “the oasis of istanbul” is in beyoglu/galatasaray. just come to taksim, ask anyone and you’ll be shown the way. or, follow the link.

    Correct! “hottest summer of the century” hasn’t arrived yet… On the contary it’s freezing out there (at least in Bağdat Street). I’m literally frozen…
    Though my plan for tonight was strolling and strolling streets for hours, watching the city at night I couldn’t endure cold and hurried back to home only at 11 pm:(
    I’ll take a sweater next time…

    We are not to far apart geographically…you are cold? Wow! I must be sick….While this is not unbearably hot, I have been soaking wet for weeks now. Give me some of your “coolness”. :)

    What Bulent Guzelkan posted looks like a delicious spam.

    Stan, İdil,
    That was one week ago and in the evening!!!:) Now it is hot (but still nights are not suffocating). But honestly, that night I run back to home because I was frozen, and I wasn’t alone: my mom was out and she felt so cold also, and she too hurried back to home. On the other hand, when my dad saw both of us returned back to home because of being frozen, he looked at us unbelievingly!:) Maybe there was something wrong between my mom and me (which wouldn’t surprise me!)…
