Thank you Istanbul.

January 21, 2009

“That you may live in interesting times”.
Is a Chinese saying which could be a blessing as well as a curse.

The big change I’m making is my move from Turkey to Holland.
It’s an interesting choice which I never though would happen at this moment of my life.
I’ve lived in Istanbul for 4 years now. It’s been hard but rewarding.
I learned many lessons about the meaning of friendships, trust, discipline, courage, and perseverance.
I’m moving because I feel there are more and bigger challenges ahead.
Turkey will always be a part of me. Thus I will be back many times a year for friends and work.

Thank you Istanbul for everything.

P.S. Good luck President Obama

  1. Sorry to see you go!
    I really felt like your presence in Istanbul gave Dutch/Turkish people there the needed bit of extra motivation.
    Wish you all the luck, wherever your journey leads you to!

    Thanks Ahmet Polat for capturing what many people couldn’t see…
