It is what being Turkish means. I am sure the only surviving person will be a Turk at the end of the world. Turkish people always find a way to stay alive. I am a travel agent in Turkey and I know many people from different countries and all of them are amazed by the way Turkish people act and solv problems. Istanbul does not have the magic. It is the people living in here.

Great vibrant city, I visit when I can.
