I started my journey living in Bebek at my friends house, is a cool place to live very beautiful, i enjoy very much one month living there, especially a walk or a run by Bosphorus, crossing the bridges connecting both sides. Including at night. Really nice.
Beyoglu was my second neighborhood during this pandemy time, my second month living there was as good as when i live in bebek, made me remember the times I lived in at my moms house at the westside of the city in São paulo.
The Old City reflects the cultural influences of the many empires that once governed the region. In the open-air Sultanahmet district is the hippodrome of the Roman era, which was the place of chariot racing for centuries.
Another interesting fact : You can find Egyptian obelisks and feel a lot of the egyptian presence there.
The Byzantine Basilica of Hagia Sophia has a bold dome from the 6th century and rare Christian mosaics that unfortunately i had not a chance to visit because of the coronavirus.
So I didn’t do much tourist, I was home working out and writing for the first 2 weeks almost, getting ready setting my mind, i need that time “alone” and my friend gave me this room so i had that time, slowly i start doing meeting for an modeling agency as still going as a financial basis, I did a meeting went super well, i got a nice job and then lock down!
But before that lockdown, I signed up with a good yoga studio to apply for a month membership, it was 15 minutes by walk from my place in Bebek. I definitely recommend Yogasala, the fair price for a month membership gives you unlimited access to all classes they have in Etiler and Nisantasi neighborhood. You can move in the city and have classes where you want.
