My Istanbul in Çukurcuma – what an immersion!

Istanbul has been a place of longing for me for many years. For a year now I have been diving more regularly into the megacity, into a very special area called Çukurcuma (“Friday Valley”). It is so unknown that I wrote a corresponding Wikipedia article in German today. Çukurcuma is a lively little quarter ignored by package tourists, but encourages individual treasure hunters to get to know antique shops, cafés and a “museum of innocence” of a Nobel Prize winner in literature.
