DEPOT and more …
On Sunday I passed the DEPOT in Tophane and discovered a rather interesting little show – Where Fire Has Struck – an exhibition on the 20th Anniversary of the Human Rights Foundation of Turkey.

Well worth a visit!
And since last week I simply can’t stop listening to a piece of music I heard at a concert at IŞ Sanat on Tuesday. It is Tchaikovsky‘s Souvenir de Florence. I found the first movement on youtube recorded in Moscow.

Another exhibition I discovered today is at the photo gallery Elipsis Gallery (http://www.photography-now.de/institutions/I7772593.html).The show is called I’m Watching You with works by the German photographer Michael Wolf who lives and works in Hong Kong. I rather liked the show!
Tonight I was taken to the Asian side of Istanbul (to Kadiköy) for a delicious dinner at Çiya (http://www.ciya.com.tr/index_en.php). It had a write-up in The New Yorker last year and stands for no-frills food from different parts of Turkey, dishes that almost seemed to be forgotten. It is located right in the middle of the Asian food market – fresh and delicious!
And so it continues …
