It has been 8 months since I stepped foot in Istanbul for the very first time, and little did I know that those 4 short days would ultimately lead to a feeling of homesickness. Except that Istanbul cannot be considered my home, since I don't speak the language, I've not contributed in any significant way to the city, and of course, I've never lived there. Yet I long to return someday like it is the place of my childhood dreams. This obsession is cured – or made worse – by the photos that I took, a one-dimensional memory of a distant place I would love to call my own.
