New generation Wanderers ..

November 26, 2009

In movies like “Came Down to City from Town”, they always put a scene like the main character stands in this really crowded street and the camera turns around her, below, u know, like she got kinda dizzy because of all the noises and people and lights and all ..You know. And i would always laugh thinking they exaggerate the whole thing.

Now i know that they dont. It’s been like 2 months since i’m away from Istanbul and i was out with friends just on the very first day i arrived in Ist, the city gave me a headache. I also standed in a crowded street (which is in Uskudar) my head swimming. God, that was strange =s

But of course i’m glad i’m back. There is no place like home =)

It’s been 5 days already since i arrived. Days are passing way really fast and i was supposed to go to two different dental hospitals at least. Did i? No, i didn’t =s .. well, i’ll go to one i guess, today. Wait a sec, today is Arefe and the holidays start today. Well done K.t., really.

Well, whatever doesn’t sound right but .. well.

I’ll have exams after the holidays, starts on 8th of Dec with the Conservative Dentistry (tooth fillings and bleachings and all, u know). Guess i should start studing.

I also stopped translating Kare Kano. What am i doing anyway?

We have become way so lazy, haven’t we? Is that the way a Muslim is supposed to be? Lazy? Uncaring? Unconcerned? Without a worry in life?

Yeah, right. Simply don’t watch TV when it’s about wars that so many innocents die in terrible ways, being forced to leave their homelands .. Animals treated bad, Green being murdered, world cracking .. People turning into things that are way much lower than animals, being dishonest to even themselves ..

The more we stay away from the “natural” the more we’re becoming “unnatural” ..

Good for us. We’re all gonna die anyway, right? Yeah, right. And what are you gonna say when u’r asked what u did to save the world? What? What were u to do on only your own?? Good answer, hon. Stick to that.

    Interesting,
    I also experienced the same thing, 6 months away from home (i rarely went home back there, i was a bad son, haha ), studying in a peaceful small town.. holiday came, i went home, to the capital city..
    I felt suddenly the city became sooo crowded, the people with very different way of living, the cars and motorcycles, tall buildings, as if i never live in crowded area.. funny though, getting culture shock in your own hometown.. lol.

    How’s the kurban? I want to know how do you do it there.
    U should write something about it, well.. only if you are not too lazy to do it. =p

  4. That was the first time in my two-years-away from home and it was strange =| ..

    Kurban..
    Well, we don’t see run-away cows on the streets anymore since there are clean-cutting foundations now that you give your to-be-sacrificed animal to them and they cut it (ok, that sounds barbarous =s) into pieces in the Islamic way and give us our share.

    Not that any bad incident never happened. Unfortunately there were some barbarian butchers (or they claim themselves to be butcher, they didn’t even have a licence!) and i couldn’t watch the evening news because of them.
    The bosphorus seaboards became red by blood. Don’t know if that’s good or bad since it means that we made our sacrifices to Allah but on the other hand all that could have happened in a so much cleaner way.

    I also didn’t go to collect candies from neighbours since i’m not 8 or younger anymore .. But i used to, and it was really fun to announce the top 5 in the best-quality-candy-giving houses with friends.

    Then, visiting relatives and being visited. Kissing elders hands and put onto your forehead. Tradition.

    Wish another peaceful bairam next year. Another? Well, hope that one was peaceful anyway.

    Butcher with license? Never heard of it in my country..
    Visiting relatives, kissing elder hands and put onto forehead, we do the same here..
    Wow, i never knew there’s candy-collecting tradition for children.. is it still part of kurban? sounds like Halloween..

  6. We’re kinda on our way to the European Union, u know. And in Europe, butchers do have to have a licence which makes sense a lot.

    Going around the neighbourhood door by door for candies is not only for Kurban Bairam, it’s also for Ramadan Bairam as well. Well, it’s more like for Ramadan Bairam (Eid-ul Fitr) since her other name is Şeker Bayramı (Bairam of Sweets) in Turkey. We also offer candies or chocolate (which we go with, more than candies lately) to guests. It’s also a tradition.
    Some doors give Turkish delight or even money.
