Even though Istanbul is crowded we can have picnics and barbecues just like we did in Adana. As soon as it’s spring, my wife, kids and I go to the Belgrad Forests or to Polonezköy for a picnic. My brother also lives in Istanbul and he knows how to play the “bağlama” really well. Sometimes he joins us and we have a good day in the forest with music and food.
I am really happy to live in Istanbul because there are opportunities of every kind in the city.
