Turkey 6 October: İstanbul
The ancient capital on two continents.
On Sunday in Belgrade forest near İstanbul we met with our friends from Adım Adım. It's an organization of runners gathering money for charity organizations by running and putting together races.
For example, this year they support and orphanage village in Koruncuk nearby.
Unfortunately the İstanbul city is lacking in green spaces, so many people escape to this pleasant forest on weekends.
Gözde received the Certificate of our Appreciation on behalf of Adım Adım for all the help and smiles.
This is how proper vegetable/fruit shop should look like. It's sad we're nowhere close to this in Czech Republic.
Viviane, Puneeta's niece, is living in İstanbul for some time now and she helped us with translations.
Sema is a practice of whirling bringing heaven to earth. The Dervishes act as the medium between heaven and earth and the "Love" energy of "Allah" goes through them throughout the length and breadth of earth.
