I learned so much about myself in Izmir, and for that I am grateful.
The photo tour:
Clockwise from top left: Sitting by the Aegean Sea; The famed clock-tower in the center of Izmir; Efes, the beer of Turkey; Turkish friends that I met through couchsurfing.
The Turkish flag, EVERYWHERE. I love it.
A park in the middle of the city.
Proof that I am a Turkish Gangstaaaaa.
Some picture proof of the crowdedness of the city. Perfectly fine for some, smothering for me.
A Michael Jackson bar & restaurant. I WAS IN HEAVEN!
A very intense warning on a cigarette pack. haha!
Turkish motto: If you ain't gotta place to park, use the sidewalk. :D
Top: Kordon, the wavy walkway by the sea. Middle: My couchsurfing roommate's kitty. Bottom: An AWESOME puppet show we attended. One of the best performances I have ever seen.
And so my Izmir post comes to an end. There's not much more to say, other than it's been real!
