‘Istanbul. The place to be’. This is the title of an interesting audio story by Justin Vela for Southeast European Times.
Here are some quotes:
‘There are many reasons for people in their 20s to move to Istanbul. They come looking for a job; they come looking for a party.
American Rebecca Doffing originally came for a Fulbright Fellowship and then fell in love with Turkey and stayed on to copyedit at a top English language newspaper.
Australian Melanie Poole originally came for her boyfriend and then fell in love with the city.
“It’s trapped between East and West, and I hate that phrase, but I think it is really that essence … is why Istanbul is that city that everyone comes to.”
