Here I am!
My Berlin story started 3 years ago. Living in Istanbul, working as a curator and hearing the rumors about the B-town that “it is the the city to be,” I have decided to give it a chance… I received a grant to be in Berlin for 5 months, then I said “perfect” a change of weather would be great. Then I would go back to my Bosphorus and its salty waters!
I remember my first day… it was a usual “minus” January day. Well, usual for the Germans, not for me! But the city’s charm started to show itself as the ice has melted, the snowy scenery left its palce to greeness and when the air was filled with the smell of the linden trees!
Then it just happened! I fell in love with the city. I still have great hunger of the city, I am learning more and more about it everyday, and I am eager to learn more. And as my hunger grows I know neither my English is enough for this city, nor my Turkish.
