Kınalıada

There’s a place for those

with a tenner on their IETT card,

with a day to escape,

where cats outnumber policemen,

where dead end streets overlook the sea,

like diving boards that giants spring from.

Here time has stopped.

But when you jump on the vapür heading back,

you realise it’s just all gone too fast.

There’s a place for those like me,

and I feel very lucky,

and that’s Kınalıada.

About seboseba

I grew up in Essex, I happen to be French and I love Turkey (the country), especially Istanbul, among other places, for having lived there. I studied European policies and communication, graduating with a MA in both (yep, studying is still almost free in France). I wrote a research dissertation on employee recognition, the origins of virtue and corporate social responsibility. I love photography (hence the blogging), European training courses, forum theatre, jazz, blues, rock music, hiking in the mountains, skiing. If I could choose, I'd be a student all my life, but that doesn't pay much! You might have guessed by now, I'm looking for a job, but communication looks like a dead end these days so maybe I'll watch Midnight Cowboy again and get inspired...:-)
