Restoration



Most Turks prefer to live in modern apartment buildings, cause the old way was hard. Some wooden Ottoman houses are being restored as low-income rentals, or as boutique bed-and-breakfasts, but full-scale gentrification in the old areas isn’t happening yet.

I am loving every one of your posts. I haven't been back to Turkey in ages and now, you've made me want to start saving my pennies so I can go again. The culture chasm between Turkey and Southern California must be simply enormous. I'm not making a judgment as to one being better than the other, just an observation.

Oh thanks so much. There's actually not so much of a chasm as you'd expect. Or maybe I'm part Turkish now, so don't notice differences as much.
