ISTANBUL DIARIES

by - 2/11/2018

I started the year in Nigeria, went to stay with my family for Christmas and new year . We threw a 60th birthday party for my dad, which was very lovely. After that I traveled to Istanbul, Turkey for the "European Week of Ethics Assembly" hosted by the European Medical Students Association (EMSA). The topic of the assembly was END OF LIFE ISSUES, I won't bore you with so much information about that.

Istanbul was always a transit city for me, I was never interested in actually exploring the city until I got this opportunity to visit. Istanbul has two parts separated by a bridge, The Bosphorus bridge. It divides the city into two parts, the European and Asian sides. The European part is the bubbly and lively part, whereas the Asian side is the more conservative part. I stayed at the Asian part because that was where the university organizing the conference was located at, and so I got a hotel close to the location. I found my way around very quickly and I was able to navigate myself through the city. Istanbul is a very lovely city, I enjoyed every day I spent there, I had the opportunity to try their kebab which was wonderful and also visited some notable landmarks. It has become one of my favorite places to visit and I would definitely love to go back some day.
