100 years of Solitude...Love in the Times of Cholera... Autumn of the Patriarch...Love and Other Demons...Chronicle of a Death Foretold... If you ever have gone to bed so sleepy and started reading, you know that his books have a strong coffee effect, and then you know his passion. I read all his 22 books. He never gave up acting as a peace-maker of middle and South America's political problems. He is a strong man! I even learnt Spanish to read his books in their own language. He had deserved the 82 Nobel prize to every extent. He felt my heart because he says: "Life is not what one lived, but one remembers and how one remembers to recount it."
Everyday, I work in Europe and come back home to Asia. Where in the world this could happen else than Istanbul? I love Istanbul. It is full of mysteries of the history and has a multicultural environment that attracts you. Istanbul is a mother city: leads you, grows you up, feeds you with enthusiasm. I started living in Istanbul when I started university, and after having the joy of my life, I got the point: I could never leave here, and never will. Isn't a Lovemark something that you can not leave?
Me gusta Barcelona! Es una ciudad maravillosa! By time, my passion for Barcelona's ambiance grew and I even learnt Spanish so that I can feel the city much more deeply. Barcelona is a city that you can let your soul be free and you can be happy with beating Picasso, Dali, Miro, Gaudi hearts everywhere.
It is like being a lion in the field when you are a Galatasaray fan. Won the 2000 UEFA cup, first ever Turkish team. 2006 Turkish Premier League Champion once again. My heart with you, like yours with us, all the time.
Modernised the country. Leaded a nation for independence. One of the greatest leaders of all times. 21st century mind at the 20th century. Never met him. Never lived in his times. Thanks to him, I am an open minded, university graduate woman, standing on my own feet and I feel beneficial to my country and the world. Thank you, Ataturk.
