The Papal Traffic

As it is already known, the Pope is in town. This historical visit is a test in multiple levels, but i suppose there is at least one who fails the test. Many Istanbulites got angry with the traffic yesterday. Because of security reasons which streets would be closed were not announced and many people who just left their work had to spend incredible amounts of time to reach home or wherever they were destined to go. I can understand the logic of security reasons but i wish the officials in charge would also care about thousands of their own citizens. I am sure our pain could be alleviated with a better organization. But would our officials care about that?…

    I actually loved the traffic situation! I had purchased tickets to Othello a while back and decided to go even though it was a pain to get there. The streets were so empty and I was able to cross the streets without the fear of death. I felt like running wild down the streets of Taksim Square.
