Turkish Protests


Around the same period of Arab Spring, people marched through Istiklal Street in the main part of Istanbul. I didn’t know exactly what they were protesting for, but there were police on standby with full riot gear. Ready to kick some ass in case shit hit the fan.



Turkish Alcohol


Rakı is an anise based spirit that is popular in Turkey. Similar to Anissette from Italy or Ouzo from Greece. It’s pretty strong stuff that most people like to drink with a bit of spring water.
