It was almost six o’clock in the afternoon in Istanbul, city of flowers and charms, the only one in the world to be situated on two continents: Europe and Asia. I arrived at Sabiha Gokcen airport (named in honour of the first woman military aviator in 1936) and the reason of my visit was to spend time with my close friend that was doing her Erasmus in Istanbul. The hairy driver of the Havabus that took us from the airport to the city advised me that we arrived in Kadikoy, district of Istanbul in the Asian side of the city. The sunset was of the indescribable beauty surrounded by the Sea of Marmara where I couldn’t hold myself from taking pictures.
I found myself surrounded by men, women with children, tourists, cats and taxi drivers that never seemed to stop beeping the horn. Out of nowhere, jumped out a boy that tried to sell me pineapple followed by a man that invited me to weight myself.
