The time has come.
After a bit over a year and a half, we leave Turkey in sadness; something that many don’t understand. Let’s face it, this country is not living the greatest moments (it is even worst if you perceive it from the outside). But it has given us many happy moments, good friends, great trips and unforgettable memories.
Istanbul is a marvelous place, historically known as “the city between the East and West“, although we haven’t felt like that. It is a messy city, with lots of traffic, intense smells, callings for prayer that seem to connect one after another, vibrant… Full of foreigners like us that fell in love with the city and resist to leave it despite family and friends insistence.
But our time in the city and the country is up. And although we leave in sorrow its streets, its sounds, its smells of spiced meat, its colorful shops, its thousands of restaurants and its constant smiles we are happy, excited about the new adventure ahead of us. A new continent is upon us, a new region to explore, new friends to make, food to try and activities to get into.
At least it will be a bittersweet farewell. Until next time Turkey, Panama awaits.
