Benoit is still here

Before we went out to eat we went to spend some time with my nephew, Lucas. I was a bit scared that I'd give him the flu but he a strong little bugger. He's talking to his mom (in France) on the phone.

At Umut Ocakbasi. nice meat place, just the right place for N.

Gulper's Bday

Happy Birthday G.

Benoit is here

Benoit and his wonderful girlfriend Sophie are in Istanbul. It's so great to see them, It has been a while since the last time. Today we went visit the Saint Savior in Chora Museum near the Balat district. Cold and Snowy day again. Then we took the car and went North on the Bosphorus' side and had a tea in Bebek. I, then, started to feel weak and feverish. I think a got the flu. Tonight we celebrate Gulper's Birthday but I'm not sure I will make it, I'll sleep instead...

Big Snow Day

This morning we woke up and were happy (well I know I was) to see that much snow outside. I got up with Ekin to walk with her to the main road (400 meters) to get a cab so she could go to work.

I was all day long at home, enjoying the view.

Derin's Bday

Well her real birthday was actually on the 14th but since I was in Spain and it was in mid week, they decided to celebrate it on Sunday. My nephew Lucas came to Turkey 2 days ago so it was really fun to have him around for this day.

snow okan

Tonight we went to Okan & Ceylan's place to have dinner with Engin and Reyhan. It started to snow a bit on way over.

1 a.m. : I was glad (we all were) I left the car down the hill, but still it took us a while to get up this little slope to get on the road. Thanks to Ekin's and Engin's muscles who cleaned up the road. It took us about an hour to get back home. As usual the city did not do anything to prevent this.

Near our house some guys had trouble getting up this hill.

View from our house.

Barcelona 3

Back from Barcelona today. Really great city. I really hope to come back soon with Ekin and show her around and also to see more of this beautiful city. The Fair was very interesting, we saw all the lasts cellphone technologies. Even though I'm a Sony-Ericsson user for many years, Nokia has come with very cool models.
Thanks to Serdar and Timur for bringing me along with them.

More pictures here.

Great city, really great.

A little break on the blog as I've been having troubles with google services for a while now (blogspot, gmail, google maps). I have trouble loading pages totally. It must be a problem with the servers in my district. So when I upload pictures, either I'm unable to do so or I can't see the pictures. So I'll wait till it works better. This happens pretty often but it's been worse those past 3 days.

Comfy Oreo 2.0

And Again now ...

Comfy Oreo

Here is Oreo in all its splendor as I'm updating the blog.

I went to work tonight. Don't forget to watch every week day on (turkish only).

Street Cat

Today, as I went to the vet' to bring Oreo for his last shots (almost), I saw this cat that stays in the neighborhood, I find him very charismatic.
