Dear Istanbul
From Another Hill


I looked at you from another hill, dear Istanbul!


I know you like back of my hand, and love you dearly

Come, come and sit on my heart´s throne as long as I live

Just to love a district of yours is worth a whole life.



There are many flourishing cities in the world.

But you´re the only one who creates enchanting beauty.

I say, he who has lived happily, in the longest dream,

Is he who spent his life in you, died in you, and was buried in you.



Yahya Kemal Beyatli (1884-1958)

The ground is moon. The sky is black. The 3 meters tall hill on the ground. The astronaut on the hill. The astronaut is facing forward. The 60 meters tall world sphere is above the ground. The sphere is 200 meters in front of The astronaut. The sphere is 15 meters above the ground.
