HOfiGELD‹N‹Z WELCOME ABOARD Say›n Konuklar›m›z, Türk Hava Yollar› olarak, uçufl emniyeti, hizmet kalitesi, ürün yelpazesi ve rekabetçilik aç›s›ndan tercih edilen ve Avrupa’n›n önde gelen havayolu olma misyonuyla ç›kt›¤›m›z yolculu¤umuzda her geçen gün yeni baflar›lara imza at›yoruz. Sizlerden ald›¤›m›z güçle, sürekli daha iyiyi hedefliyor ve sorumlulu¤unu her noktada hissetti¤imiz Türkiye’nin bayrak tafl›y›c›s› olma gururuyla, uluslararas› alandaki etkinli¤imizi art›r›yoruz.

Dear Guests, In the journey it set out on with the mission of becoming one of Europe’s leading airlines, preferred by customers for its flight safety, service quality, range of products and competitiveness, Turkish Airlines is chalking up new successes with every passing day. We are aiming to go ever higher with the strength we derive from you. We are therefore stepping up our activities in the international arena, filled with pride in being Turkey’s flagship carrier, a responsibility of which we are aware at every step.

Tüm bu çabalar›m›z›n sonucunda her geçen gün daha da iyi sonuçlara imza at›yoruz. Bunlardan birkaç›n› sizlerle paylaflmak ve Türk Hava Yollar› olarak nas›l bir geliflim süreci içerisinde oldu¤umuzu aktarmak istiyorum.

As a result of our efforts, we are reaching new heights every day. I would like to share a few of them with you and tell you about Turkish Airlines’ current process of development. Based on data compiled by the Association of European Airlines (AEA), Turkish Airlines was Europe’s fourth largest in terms of number of passengers carried in the January-May period of 2009. Serving some 8.9 million people following a ten percent increase in passenger numbers, Turkish Airlines today is right behind Germany’s Lufthansa, France’s Air France, and England’s British Airways. Our target now is to become one of the top three. As the only airline in Europe that has managed to increase its passenger traffic and numbers compared with figures for 2008, I am confident that we are soon going to achieve this goal thanks to the successful strategies we have implemented in the recent past and to the favor you have shown us.

Türk Hava Yollar›, Avrupa Havayollar› Birli¤i (Association of European Airlines – AEA) verilerine göre 2009 y›l›n›n Ocak-May›s döneminde tafl›nan yolcu say›s› bak›m›ndan Avrupa’n›n dördüncü büyük havayolu oldu. Yüzde 10 yolcu art›fl›yla 8,9 milyon kifliye hizmet veren Türk Hava Yollar›; Almanya’n›n Lufthansa, Fransa’n›n Air France ve ‹ngiltere’nin British Airways flirketlerinin hemen ard›nda yer al›yor. Bundan sonraki hedefimiz ilk üç s›ra içerisinde yer almak. 2008 y›l› verileriyle karfl›laflt›r›ld›¤›nda Avrupa’da yolcu say›s›n› ve trafi¤ini art›rabilen tek havayolu flirketi olarak son dönemde baflar›yla uygulad›¤›m›z stratejilerimiz ve sizlerin teveccühü sayesinde bu hedefe en k›sa sürede eriflece¤imize inan›yorum. Bir di¤er önemli ve sevindirici geliflme de havac›l›k sektöründe son derece önemli bir yere sahip olan AviationWeek dergisinin yapt›¤› de¤erlendirme sonucunda elde etti¤imiz konumdur. Dergi, befl farkl› bafll›kta ele ald›¤› ve sa¤l›kl› bir flirket yap›s›na sahip olmay› temel alan kapsaml› bir araflt›rma sonucunda bir s›ralama oluflturdu. Türk Hava Yollar› olarak, dünyadaki tüm havayollar›n› kapsayan bu s›ralamada 4. olman›n mutlulu¤u içerisindeyiz. Bir önceki y›l 13. s›rada yer alan Ortakl›¤›m›z, bu y›l 9 s›ra yükselerek en çok geliflim gösteren havayolu flirketi olma unvan›n› da kazand›.

In another important and encouraging development we have also earned a strong position in a survey conducted by Aviation Week, one of the most respected publications in the aviation sector. Based on the results of a comprehensive survey under five headings, the magazine ranked airlines in terms of the soundness of their corporate structure. Turkish Airlines is pleased to have placed fourth in this ranking, which included all the airlines in the world. At thirteenth in last year’s survey, our airline rose this year by nine places to earn the title of the airline showing the biggest development.

De¤erli konuklar›m›z, Ekonomik krizin etkilerini hâlâ hissettirdi¤i, rekabetin her geçen gün fliddetini art›rd›¤› günümüzde bu geliflmeyi sa¤lamak, bu sonuçlar› elde etmek Türk Hava Yollar› çal›flanlar› olarak bizleri mutlu ve gururlu k›l›yor. ‹mza att›¤›m›z ortak uçufl anlaflmalar›yla eriflim noktalar›m›z›n say›s›n› her geçen gün art›r›yoruz. Dünyan›n bir noktas›n› di¤er noktas›na ba¤layabilen bir havayolu flirketi olma sürecinde çok emin ve h›zl› ad›mlarla ilerliyoruz. Bu süreçte de gücümüzü sizlerden al›yoruz.

Turkish Airlines is proud and happy to have achieved these results and accomplished this development at a time when the effects of the economic crisis are still being felt and the competition is becoming more fierce by the day. We are continuously adding new destinations to our flight network through the code share agreements we sign with other airlines. With sure steps, we are rapidly moving forward towards becoming an airline that can link any point in the world with any other. And in that process we are deriving our strength from you.

Yolculuklar›n›zda Türk Hava Yollar›’n› tercih etti¤iniz için teflekkür ediyor, iyi uçufllar diliyorum.

I thank you for choosing Turkish Airlines and wish you a pleasant flight.

Sevgi ve sayg›lar›mla, Doç. Dr. Temel Kotil, Genel Müdür ve Yönetim Kurulu Üyesi

Sincerely yours, Temel Kotil, Ph.D. CEO and Member of the Board

MÜZ‹K MUSIC Eski rockç›, yeni hikâyeci Alev Lenz Old rock artist, new storyteller, Alev Lenz Almanya’da kurup ad›n› verdi¤i rock grubu Alev’den ayr›lan Alev Lenz, ilk stüdyo albümü Storytelling piano playing Fräulein ile karfl›m›zda. Bir aya¤› Do¤u’da, bir aya¤› Bat›’da eski rockç› yeni hikâye anlat›c›s› Lenz, Alman bir baba ile Türk bir annenin k›z› ama

albümün tüm parçalar› ‹ngilizce. Vokal ve piyano temelli ‘Storytelling piano playing Fräulein’, yayl› düzenlemeler yan›nda farkl› enstrüman kombinasyonlar›n› baflar›yla bir araya getirmesiyle dikkat çekiyor. Albümün bir özelli¤i de her yafla hitap etmesi.

Leaving the group, ‘Alev’, which she formed in Germany and to which she gave her name, Alev Lenz now brings us her first studio album, Storytelling piano playing Fräulein. With one foot in the East and one in the West, the former rock artist/new storyteller Lenz is the daughter of a German father and a Turkish mother. But all the songs on her album are in English. Vocal and piano based, ‘Storytelling piano playing Fräulein’ is noteworthy for successful combining string arrangements with different combinations of instruments. The album also appeals to all ages.

Bestekâr III. Selim Han an›s›na… In memory of composer Selim III

BATI YAKASI’n›n ilk albümü PMD Yap›m’dan ç›kt›. Korhan Çelik (vokal/gitar), Can Bezgen (gitar), Altu¤ fienkal (bas gitar) ve Ergün Y›ld›z’dan (davul) oluflan ekip Çanakkaleli. Albümde Çanakkale Zaferi’ne ithaf edilen bir flark› bulunmas› (Son Nefes) biraz da bu sebeple. Söz ve müziklerin BATI YAKASI’na ait oldu¤u albümün ç›k›fl parças› ise müzik listelerini zorlayan ‘4 Gün Önce’.

Osmanl› Sultan› III. Selim’in 18 y›ll›k saltanat›n ard›ndan 1808’de isyanc›lar taraf›ndan öldürüldü¤ü bilinir. Ama III. Selim’in pek bilinmeyen bir taraf› var ki; o da befl yafl›nda bafllad›¤› e¤itimini fliir, hat ve musiki üzerine sürdürdü¤ü ve birinci s›n›f bir bestekâr oldu¤u… ‹stanbul Büyükflehir Belediyesi Kültür A.fi, ölümünün 200. y›l› an›s›na bestekâr III. Selim’in eserlerinden oluflan iki CD’lik bir albüm haz›rlayarak bu sanatkâr padiflah› an›yor.

WEST SIDE has released their first album from PMD Yap›m. The team, which includes Korhan Çelik (vocals/guitar), Altu¤ fienkal (bass guitar) and Ergün Y›ld›z (percussion), is from Çanakkale on the Dardanelles peninsula, which explains why one song (Son Nefes/Last Breath) on the album is dedicated to Turkey’s victory at Gallipoli. ‘4 Gün Önce/4 Days Ago’, the first single released from the album, words and lyrics by WEST SIDE, is already topping the charts.

The Ottoman Sultan Selim III is known to have been murdered by rebels following a reign of 18 years. But Selim III also has a lesser known side; namely, that he was a first-rate composer who all his life pursued the poetry, calligraphy and music that he first began studying at the age of five. Kültür A.fi. is now honoring this composer-sultan in a double CD album of his works on the 200th anniversary of his death.

According to data released by the Association European Airlines (AEA), Turkish Airlines, which was Europe’s seventh largest by number of passengers last year, displaced SAS Scandinavian, Iberian (Spain), and KLM (Holland) in the first five months of this year to rise to fourth place immediately behind Lufthansa (Germany), Air France (France) and British Airways (The United Kingdom). 24 S K Y L I F E 8 / 2 0 0 9

Among the passengers,” Y›ld›r›m emphasized, “were people from countries like Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, Iran and Russia, which shows over how broad an area these flights can have an impact.

A subsidiary of Turkish Airlines, Anadolu Jet has undertaken sponsorship of Renault Williams rally driver Tayfun Apuhan. Director of Regional Flights Sami Alan announced the airline’s sponsorship of the 2009 Turkey Rally Championship at a recent meeting at Çorlu Airport. “As part of this one-year contract,” said Alan, “we are supporting a single driver of a very special car like the Renault Clio Williams in Turkey.” Briefing participants on Anadolu Jet’s operations and overall situation, Alan said that the airline currently flies to 25 destinations from Ankara. “We are linking all points in Anatolia,” said Alan. “Taking at Anadolu Jet as a whole, we are serving at 85% occupancy. This means an average increase of 25% since last year in our number of passengers. This is a very good and non-trivial percentage. These figures are especially important in a year that will be remembered for an economic downturn. Anatolia is standing up for its jet airline and we are grateful.” Pointing out that Anadolu Jet has developed a new program, Alan told participants that everyone who purchases a round-trip ticket from Çorlu to Ankara will be given a third ticket tax-free. After the press conference and reception that followed, rally driver Tayfun Apuhan took a brief turn around the track with the car he has used in races.

THE CITY’S PAST… Toronto, Canada’s largest city and its commercial and cultural center, now sprawls over 643 sq. kms, but this bustling development is astonishingly new. The city’s history goes back only about two hundred years. For more than 11,000 years, only aboriginal peoples lived on the flat expanse of shallow marsh area – the former lake bed of Lake Iroquois – on the northwest shore of Lake Ontario, and they had no contact with the Europeans until the 17th century. In the 18th century, the French set up some small trading posts in the area, but it was the British colonizers of the Province of Upper Canada, in the late 18th century, who bought the land from its aboriginal population and set up a military post and civilian settlement here. Until the 1940’ies, Toronto’s population was largely of British origin. In the 20th century, especially after World War II, the city began to receive waves of immigrants. Soon, Toronto was competing with Montreal as Canada’s cultural centre. Today, more than five and a half million people live in the Greater Toronto Area, and half of them were born outside Canada.

Toronto’da iken ziyaretçilerin görmeden geçmeyece¤i bir di¤er kültürel ve mimari harika Royal Ontario Museum’dur.

NOT TO MISS WHILE IN TORONTO… For many years, on postcards and key chains, the CN (Canadian National) tower was the symbol of Toronto. Today, other high-rise structures compete for the visitors’ attention but the CN tower is still the first landmark most tourist visit first. An engineering marvel, and the world’s second highest structure, the CN tower dominates the Toronto skyline. It takes less than a minute for an elevator to take visitors up to the top of the tower at 22 km/hour for a breathtaking view of the entire region, or an elegant meal at the revolving restaurant. While in Toronto, the visitor should also see a cultural and architectural wonder: the Royal Ontario Museum. This is Canada’s largest museum of human heritage, with a new, stunning steel and glass structure designed by architect Daniel Libeskind: the Michael Lee-Chin Crystal. (A series of giant crystals that rise five-storeys from street level will soon house the dinosaur exhibition of the museum to dazzle the passers-by on Bloor Avenue). Many visitors will be surprised to find an Edwardian castle called Casa Loma in such a modern city. In late 19th century, an eccentric millionaire named Sir Henry Pellatt, out to build the largest residence in Canada, constructed an extravagant, 98-room mansion, over-looking the city. Unfortunately, the lavish Casa Loma drew Sir Henry to bankruptcy, but with its rich wood carvings and stained glass decorations, it’s a magnificent museum. For those on the look-out for nostalgic architecture, Toronto’s Distillery District is a must. During a visit to Toronto

Hollywood’dan gelen bir film ekibi bu bölgedeki 19. yüzy›ldan kalma bir fabrika binas›nda 1920’lerin Chicago’sunu canland›ran bir set kuruyordu. 19. yüzy›lda ‹ngiltere’deki en büyük viski üreticisi olan Gooderham and Worts Distellery’nin tu¤ladan yap›lan binalar› bugün sanat galerilerine, butiklere, bir çikolata fabrikas›na, restoranlara ve hatta bir sinemaya ev sahipli¤i yap›yor. Toronto’nun yeni simgesi olan belediye binas› da mutlaka görülmesi gereken yerlerden biridir.

a couple of years ago, I was amused to see a Hollywood film crew in the Distillery District, re-creating the Chicago of the 1920’ies, in the best preserved 19th century factory complex in Canada. The brick buildings of the Gooderham and Worts Distillery – the largest whiskey producer in the British Empire in the 19th century – are now restored to house art galleries, boutiques, a chocolate factory, bistros and even a theatre. Of course the new symbol of Toronto: the city’s new City Hall also has to be seen. This is a modernist structure completed in 1965 by Finnish architect Viljo Revell who thought of the two semi-circular towers as ‘the eye of the city.” Another innovative structure long awaited by Torontonians, is the Four Seasons Performing Arts Centre, designed by Diamond Schmitt, housing the Canadian Opera Company and the National Ballet of Canada. While an architectural renaissance gathers momentum in Toronto, the venerable Art Gallery of Ontario has been re-designed by architect Frank Gehry, to offer a feast for art lovers’ eyes. Not to be outdone by arts organizations, hockey, Canada’s national sports has found an honoured place in Toronto. The city prides itself with the largest hockey museum in North America: the Hockey Hall of Fame. Hockey fans will surely enjoy seeing relics belonging to all time hockey starts of the continent.

in downtown Toronto. The aristocratic structure, inaugurated by the Viceroy Lord Willingdon in 1929 was once the tallest building in the British Common Wealth. The city of Toronto grew around the Royal York. Last, but not the least, the shopping opportunities in Toronto certainly deserve a mention. One of North America’s first downtown shopping malls opened at the centre of Toronto, in 1977. With its spacious galleries and glass ceiling, the Eaton Center was considered revolutionary at the time. It is still a shopper’s paradise. Those who want exclusive shopping will find their heart’s desires fulfilled at the upscale Yorkdale Mall. TORONTO’S SOCIAL FABRIC I asked a friend who lives in Toronto what he most loves about his city. “For me the most wonderful things about Toronto are the neighbourhoods, very often of ethnic character, but always claiming a specialty of some

According to the statistics of the City of Toronto, in 2006, the city’s residents had more than 200 different ethnic origins, and only half of the immigrants in Toronto had lived in Canada for more than 15 years. More than 140 different languages and dialects are spoken in the city – yet English is the language that connects everyone.

With more than 7000 dining alternatives, Toronto boasts the finest cuisine in Canada. NATURAL BEAUTIES AND PARKS First a word about climate: it’s no secret that Canadian winters are fierce. But thanks to Lake Ontario, Toronto is blessed with a milder climate.

CULTURE AND ART Toronto has a dizzyingly sophisticated cultural life. The city’s pride and joy, the Royal Ontario Museum (the ROM) was built in 1912. The Toronto Symphony Orchestra was established in 1922. Since 1982, the Orchestra is housed in the Roy Thompson Hall, an impressive concert hall with 2, 630 seats, whose striking architecture with a glass dome, has made it a landmark in the King St. Theatre district. Two major opera companies and many more smaller ones perform regularly to near sell out crowds. Toronto boasts the largest number of theatres after New York and hosts a major international Film Festival each year in September. The largest Caribbean festival in North America, the Caribana, will be in full swing in late July, and until mid-August, the Toronto Summer Music festival will fill some of the city’s parks with chamber music. In late August, the Toronto Chinatown Festival will enthrall crowds with chinese food, costumes, music dance, Kung-fu shows and street stands.

THE FUTURE IS NOW… Perhaps it’s the sudden architectural renaissance now underway, that symbolizes Toronto’s mood in the early 21st century; a mood characterized by an openness to change and tolerance for differences. Do you wonder what a confident, sophisticated, multicultural city of the future world will look like? Take a look at Toronto. 8 / 2 0 0 9 S K Y L I F E 47

riceless in the rich legacy of my childhood memories is the wish my mother whispered in my ear every night before I went to sleep: “I hope you will fly like a bird in your dreams!” Perhaps it was for this reason that whenever I was asked what I wanted to be when I grew up I always said, “A pilot.” As one of my first steps towards realizing that dream I did research on the subject of paragliding over the years and learned that, apart from Eskiflehir, Bolu and Adapazar›, this sport was best practiced at Fethiye’s Ölüdeniz. I will never forget how my heart skipped a beat when I found out that a colleague of mine in an organization in which I was a volunteer was a former paragliding pilot there. His recommendations regarding the best place and person for getting started made my job considerably easier.

Travel plans were laid every spring and fall for learning paragliding, but each time fulfillment was postponed to another spring. As I was swept along in the river called life, my dreams of flying were constantly being put off. Finally one day I rang up the paragliding trainer during a free moment I was able to snatch from the clutches of time and work. As always he replied, “What are you waiting for! Come as fast as you can. This is the time to fly!” Packing my dreams in my bag I jumped on my motorcycle and was at Ölüdeniz the next morning. I can’t possibly describe how it took my breath away to see the paragliders passing over my head as I searched for the paragliding school in the streets of this very regularly laid out town. I arrived at the school thinking how I, like them, would soon be gliding through the air. The minute I met the trainer for 68 S K Y L I F E 8 / 2 0 0 9

the first time and, within the short space of ten minutes, got the entire training program from him and learned that under the supervision of a good instructor a person could learn to fly on his own within three days and that I would be strapping the glider on my back for the first time the next morning, it was as if those moments were part of a dream I wanted never to end. INITIAL INSTRUCTION The runs I made on the shore the next day in the Ölüdeniz heat with an old-fashioned harness and an ideal, difficult-to-control training glider on my back reminded me of the flying instructions my mother used to give baby birds. For the first thing a person who wants to fly has to do is to run time and time again on the sands at the shore with the glider on his back. After three very pleasurable but equally exhausting days at the shore, we listened to the weather forecast for Thursday, when we were to make our first flight. All I could do was hope that everything would go as well as possible. The weather conditions were crucial, because paragliding is an almost one hundred percent safe sport as

Anyway, everything was going well. On Thursday morning my classmate Remko and I got in the car. After what seemed like an interminable twenty minutes, we arrived at the 100-meter high Karaçulha piste which is used for training.

I then took my position, felt the wind and... Not knowing whether to weep or scream, I heard my instructor’s

I spread my paraglider on the ground and strapped on my harness. I received the route commands correctly from my trainer. But my irrepressible urge to fly impelled me to stay in the air a little too long. I got off course and couldn’t help laughing when my landing in a tea garden some 100 meters

inland from the shore became inevitable. After overturning a few beach umbrellas and landing on a pouffe, I was so relieved that I immediately asked the waiter, who was gaping in amazement at this unexpected guest out of the sky, to bring me two glasses of tea. If you could only have seen the astonished expression on his face when he asked me who the second glass was for: “My instructor,” I replied. “He’s up there. The lesson is over now and he’s going to come and have tea with me.”

n the mid-1850’s, when he had been Ottoman Grand Vezir for only forty days, Hac› Memifl A¤a’s ship was caught in a storm returning from Algeria. The vezir and his entourage took refuge in a small harbor not normally accustomed to the arrival of so many important ships at once. The anomaly drew the attention of the local notables who wondered who had come and if the new arrivals could solve their problems. And so the hospitable people of the region we know today as Alaçat› hosted their unexpected guests. Never suspecting how it would alter their fate.

The swamp was drained with the help of rainwater as well as the natural circulation of the river water. Meanwhile the workers brought over from the islands settled at Alaçat› and intermingled with the local people.

The people of Alaçat› had a chronic problem. A swamp that extended inland from the harbor along the Yumru River caused malaria, and malaria in turn caused death. The leading men of Alaçat› pleaded with the important guests the storm had forced to take refuge in their harbor to drain the swamp and thereby put a stop to the endless round of deaths.

Thanks to the islanders, who knew the local geography well, crops were raised that were suitable to the agricultural conditions created by the area’s clean air and abundant winds, paving the way to a new economic order that would achieve international fame. The people of Alaçat› quickly planted vineyards as well as olive, almond, fig and terebinth trees. They processed the grapes they grew in their vineyards in a factory they built at the harbor, from where they also marketed abroad the local olives (hurma zeytin), olive oil, dried figs and almonds they raised. Meanwhile they created a town of narrow streets lined with hipped-roof stone houses with cantilevered wooden balconies where living was a pleasure. Having built their houses in line with the wind patterns and with little exposure to the sun, they also laid out the streets in line with the prevailing breezes, inviting the winds that would virtually transform their fate. In short, they established a new way of life shaped by the

1980’li y›llarda sörfçüler taraf›ndan keflfedilen Alaçat›, bugün dünyan›n her yerinden turisti kendine çekiyor. Discovered by surfers in the 1980's, Alaçat› attracts tourists from all over the world today.

In 1914 Muslim refugees of Albanian and Bosnian descent arrived in Alaçat› from the Balkans. These refugees were livestock farmers by trade. But a different economic and social order reigned in Alaçat›. In the Population Exchange that followed the Lausanne Treaty, a second wave of refugees from Salonica arrived in the spring of 1924, bringing with them their livelihood of tobacco-growing. Strangers to tobacco, both the soil and the long-standing residents soon came to know it well at Alaçat›. But the introduction of tobacco changed the economic structure of the region as vineyards, olive groves, figs, almonds and terebinth gave way to tobacco fields. Because the region’s climate was not conducive to raising tobacco, Alaçat› barely scraped by for many years, stewing in its own juices. People even migrated away from the town, providing the cities with workers, ironworks and cement factories. Then, in the 1970’s there was migration into Alaçat› again, this time from Anatolia. It wasn’t long before melons were being grown and exported abroad.

SURFING BRINGS GOOD FORTUNE At the start of the 1990’s Alaçat›’s fate was once again transformed by the wind, its virtual soul, which this time brought surfing to the town. With steady winds in the absence of breakers, Alaçat› turned out to be one of the most suitable sites in the world for the sport of surfing. The first wind surfing club opened in Alaçat› in 1993. Enclosed on three sides and open to the sea only on the south, Yumru bay provides a sense of security reinforced by the mountains to the east. Since the bay is mostly shallow with a sandy bottom, even those who barely knew how to swim had no trouble learning to surf here. Early in 2000, Alaçat› made a rapid return to the global agenda with its stone-built hotels and surfing beaches, waking up from its long slumber as if in defiance of its painful past. As the locals like to put it, ‘ecotourism’ created its own economy. The area’s coastlines were protected, wind surfing and kite surfing clubs opened, world championships were held; one by one the stone houses were restored and a plethora of small hotels, each more charming than the last, opened for business.

Most of them restored stone houses over 150 years old, these hotels literally spellbind visitors with their harmony of old and new. Owned and operated mainly by women, they offer with an array of local sweets. Homemade jams, hurma zeytin (a breed of olive) grown only on the peninsula, and country eggs make up the memorable breakfasts served by Alacat›’s hotels.

As you stroll through the market, be sure to try the lemon ice cream and milk pudding made with gum mastic. Know, too, that you will regret it if you don’t sample some village bread from one of the local bakeries with their authentic woodburning ovens, some Izmir cheese in a goatskin from the Saturday market, and the tomatoes and white onions grown on the plain. If you happen to be there in October or November, don’t forget to ask about the local ‘hurma zeytin’.

The wind that crossed Hac› Memifl A¤a’s path and made him take refuge in the harbor transformed Alaçat›’s unfortunate fate some 150 years ago. That same wind, which later made the region’s grapes, olives and lavender different from all others, still continues its age-old dance today, frolicking with the surfers, wafting the scent of lavender, ripening the local olives. Enhancing the flavor of

the vegetables grown on the plain, at the same time it drives wind turbines to generate electrical power. Created to protect the architectural fabric and social structure as well as the environment, ‘ecotourism’ also breathes life into the economy. The electricity generated by wind turbines creates sustainable energy resources. Thanks to the wind, surfing stations make a major contribution to tourism. Who knows? Perhaps Alaçat› is going to emerge one day as a ‘slow city’ of peace, tranquility and joie de vivre.

n 9 October this year the first ascent of Mount A¤r›, the highest mountain in Turkey, is going to be celebrated in the nearby town of Do¤ubayaz›t. This first climb, which occupies a very important place in the history of mountain climbing in Turkey, was carried out by the Estonian traveler and professor of physics, Johann Jakob Freidrich Wilhelm Parrot, together with three of his students as well as Khachatur Abovian, who would later become a famous poet. The 9th of October 1829 when the five-man team reached the summit is regarded as the beginning of mountain climbing in both Turkey and Estonia. To mark that date, a large-scale celebration is therefore going to be held this year with

AN IDEAL START Mount A¤r› also appears in Marco Polo’s accounts of his travels, where it is in fact described as a mountain that can never be scaled. A dormant volcano, Mount A¤r› at 5137 meters is an ideal mountain for climbers making their first high-altitude climb. Since a summer climb poses no technical difficulties whatsoever, Mount A¤r› is a mountain visited every year by large numbers of Turkish and foreign hikers and mountain climbers who return home having experienced the thrill and the pleasure of making the highest climb of their lives. Winter climbs however are a different story since severe seasonal weather conditions and the crossing of a glacier at 5000 meters have to be taken seriously and require good preparation. The first winter climb on Mount A¤r› was made on 21 February 1970 by Dr. Bozkurt Ergör. Since then, tens of thousands of Turkish and foreign mountaineers have succeeded in scaling Mount A¤r› via different routes both summer and winter. While winter climbs are suitable only for experienced, well-trained and well-equipped climbers, summer climbs usually consist of nothing more than a rigorous hike in the cold.

history of the world. It would not be wrong to say that there are hundreds of thousands of people who want to climb Mount A¤r› or visit this mountain whose name is mentioned in the holy books. Mount A¤r› therefore possesses a very significant tourism potential for Turkey and the region. Unfortunately however this potential cannot be said to have been effectively exploited up to now, but I believe that in the years ahead we are going to close the gap. I should hasten to add that the Mount A¤r› and Noah’s Ark symposiums that have been being held since 2005 are an important effort in this regard. The most popular route for climbing Mount A¤r› is the safer and easier one on the southern face of the mountain from the

Do¤ubayaz›t side. There are also other routes for approaching the mountain. But whichever route you choose, climbing Mount A¤r› requires the permission of the Turkish government. For Turkish mountain climbers securing this permission is quite easy; for foreigners it is more difficult and a certain degree of timeconsuming bureaucracy is involved. To my mind, this is a process that needs to be facilitated and streamlined for foreign climbers. A large number of foreigners who want to visit Turkey and Mount A¤r› are unnecessarily deterred by the plethora of bureaucratic details. TO THE SUMMIT To climb Mount A¤r› via its southern face, the easiest and safest ascent to the summit, you first make a brief journey of two hours by car from your hotel in Do¤ubayaz›t to the village of Eli at 2400 meters. Heavy loads meanwhile can be transported on horseback to the first camp at 3300 meters and from there to the second camp at 4200 meters. This offers everyone the possibility of a comfortable climb and means that you can continue your climb carrying only enough provisions for that day. Including a oneday acclimatization climb and a rest, Mount A¤r› can be climbed in a total of five or six days. The place where an amateur mountaineer climbing Mount A¤r› is going to get closest to the experience of a professional climber is at the passage to the summit where crampons must be worn starting from 4950 meters and during the steep

climb from there on up to the top. The final steps to the summit give the climber the feeling that he is scaling a very steep, cold, white void lashed by harsh winds. Completing this last stage of the climb is truly a moment of victory. Those last meters of effort will be remembered over and over again for years, conjuring up a sense of pride every time.

The radio was on and a DJ with a deep voice was talking about the ‘Saison de la Turquie en France’. “We’ve seen a lot of Muslims around here before,” said the taxi driver, a congenial man of Algerian descent, “but this time it’s like all Paris is talking about the Turks!” And then he added, “My wife went there recently.

Fransa’da 80’e yak›n noktada 400’den fazla etkinlikle tam anlam›yla bir ‘Türkiye Mevsim’i yaflan›yor. With more than 400 events at close to 80 different venues, this is ‘Turkish Season’ in France.

Fransa ve Türkiye D›fliflleri Bakanl›klar›’n›n deste¤i, ‹KSV ve CulturesFrance organizasyonuyla 2010 Mart’›n›n son gününe dek sürecek Mevsim; tüm boyutlar› ve renkleriyle bugünkü Türkiye’yi anlatma niyetinde. Fransa’n›n Paris, Marsilya, Lille, Strasbourg ve Bordeaux baflta olmak üzere 80’e yak›n yerleflim bölgesinde plastik sanatlardan sinemaya, tarihten edebiyata 400 kadar etkinlik var. Mevsim’in bu kadar genifl bir co¤rafyaya, hatta neredeyse tüm ülkeye yay›lmas› Fransa için bir ilk. Fransa 1985’ten beri bir yandan yabanc› ülke mevsimleri, bir yandan da di¤er ülkelerde Fransa mevsimleri düzenliyor ama bu kadar etkili bir baflka örne¤in yaflanmad›¤›nda herkes hemfikir. Bu tür mevsimler Paris baflta olmak üzere bir iki flehirle s›n›rl› kal›rm›fl genelde. Oysa Türkiye Mevsimi küçük köylere kadar ulaflt›. Örne¤in Fatih Sultan Mehmed’in o¤lu Cem Sultan’›n 1486-1488 y›llar›n› geçirdi¤i Limousin Bölgesindeki Bourganeuf köyüne... Fransa’n›n D›fliflleri ve Kültür Bakanl›klar›, kamu ve özel sektördeki kültür kurumlar› ve tüm yerel yönetimleri Mevsim’i destekliyor. Emekli Büyükelçi Necati Utkan ve Axa flirketler grubu Baflkan› Henri de Castries etkinli¤in baflkanlar›, Frans›z Büyükelçili¤i eski Kültür Müsteflar› Stanislas Pierret ve ‹KSV Genel Müdürü Görgün Taner de organizasyon komiserleri olarak görev al›yor. TAR‹H‹ ‹L‹fiK‹LER Mevsim’in bu kadar desteklenmesinde kökleri 15. yüzy›la kadar uzanan Türkiye-Fransa iliflkileri önemli rol oynuyor. 5361 Türkçe kelimenin Frans›zca kökenli oldu¤u düflünüldü¤ünde iliflkilerin ne denli derin oldu¤u anlafl›l›yor zaten. Mevsim biraz da Fransa-Türkiye iliflkilerini göz ard› edenlere cevap niteli¤inde. “Fransa’daki Türk imaj› her zaman olumlu olmayabilir. Ama Türkiye hareket eden ve de¤iflen bir ülke. Sadece kendini Fransa’da yeteri kadar tan›tamad›.” diyor ve ekliyor Pierret: “Ancak Mevsim’i siyaset için bir araç olarak görmek do¤ru olmaz. Mevsim, her fleyden önce kültürel bir organizasyon. Önemli olan Türk kültürünü tan›mak, önyarg›lardan kurtulmak ve her alanda karfl›l›kl› diyalog bafllatmak.” “Mevsim’in iki ülke aras›nda siyasi yak›nlaflmalara vesile olaca¤›na dair kuvvetli mesajlar var.” diyen

With the backing of the Foreign Ministries of both countries, the Istanbul Foundation for Art and Culture (‹KSV) and CulturesFrance, the ‘Season’, which is going to continue through the last day of March 2010, is intended to present today’s Turkey in all its many facets and dimensions. Some 400 events are planned in genres from cinema and the plastic arts to history and literature in close to 80 cities including Paris, Marseilles, Lille, Strasbourg and Bordeaux. A cultural event on this scale, spread over almost the entire country, the ‘Season’ is a first for France. Such foreign country ‘seasons’ as well as French ‘seasons’ in other countries have been being held since 1985, but everyone is agreed that none up to now has made such an impact. Most events of this nature have been confined to one or two cities, mainly Paris. Turkish Season in contrast has penetrated down to even the small villages. The village of Bourganeuf, to name one, in the Limousin region where Mehmed the Conqueror’s son Cem Sultan spent the years 14861488. The Season has the backing of France’s Ministries of Foreign Affairs and Culture and all local administrations as well as many privately funded cultural organizations. Retired Ambassador Necati Utkan and the President of the Axa Group, Henri de Castries, are the chairmen of the project, and the former cultural attaché of the French Embassy, Stanislas Pierret, and the President of the Istanbul Foundation of Art and Culture, Görgün Taner, are the organization commissioners. HISTORIC RELATIONS With roots going back to the 15th century, relations between Turkey and France have played a key role in galvanizing support for the ‘Season’ on this scale. It’s no wonder that these relations are as profound as they are considering that there are 5,361

Görgün Taner’e göre ise kültür ve sanat›n sosyoekonomik ve siyasi gündem üzerindeki olumlu etkisi kaç›n›lmaz. ETK‹NL‹K S‹LS‹LES‹ Kültürel etkinlik takibinin yaflam›n önemli bir parças› oldu¤u Fransa’da, dokuz ay ayn› heyecan› ve ilgiyi ayakta tutmak kolay de¤il. Ama Fransa’daki kültür sanat etkinliklerinin yüksek standard›n› göz ard› etmeyen ve iki sene boyunca özenle çal›flan Türk ekip, yabanc› kültürleri keflfetmeye merakl› Frans›zlar›n ilgisini ve merak›n› tatmin edecek çok çeflitli bir program haz›rlad›. “Program›n temel ekseni dün, bugün ve yar›n aras›ndaki köprüyü kurmak. Hedefimiz Frans›zlara, Türkiye’nin gelece¤in Avrupa kültürüne yapaca¤› katk›lar› göstermek.” diyen Taner, her disiplinde ça¤dafl bir yaklafl›mla Türkiye’yi anlatt›klar›n› söylüyor. Güncel sanat, Mevsim’in öne ç›kan ayaklar›ndan biri. Uluslararas› alanda kendini ispat etmifl Türk sanatç›lar›n yap›tlar›n›n yer ald›¤› ve Fransa’n›n önemli güncel sanat küratörlerinden Caroline Naphegyi taraf›ndan düzenlenen ‘‹stanbul Traversée’ sergisi, bu modern bak›fl›n en önemli göstergesi. Atlanmamas› gereken bir di¤er fley de Frans›z yetkililerin, projelerin gerçekleflmesi için adeta seferber oldu¤u. Örne¤in Tuileries bahçelerinde inflaat yap›lmas›na Louvre’un tarihinde ilk defa izin verilmifl. Bahçede, yaklafl›k 600 metrekarelik bir alan üzerinde, mimari tasar›m› Han Tümertekin taraf›ndan yap›lan ve Mevsim’in Paris’teki buluflma noktas› olarak düflünülen bir Türk Kahvesi infla edildi. 17 Temmuz’da Kudsi Erguner’in yönetimindeki ‘Trakya’n›n Bohemleri’ konseriyle aç›l›fl› yap›lan mekân, 8 A¤ustos’a kadar aç›k. Türk kahvesi konsepti etraf›nda gerçekleflen tad›m ve sohbetlerin efllik etti¤i mekân, ‹stanbul ve kahve kültürünü anlatan müzikli edebiyat okumas› ‘Kahve Bahane’nin iki gösterisinin de ev sahibi. Geleneksel Türk kahvehanelerinin ça¤dafl bir yorumu olarak tasarlanan kahvehanede zengin tarihsel mirastan beslenen fakat bu mirasa ça¤dafl bir sunum getiren konserler, atölye çal›flmalar› ve sergiler var. Türkiye Mevsimi’nin bir di¤er ayr›cal›¤› da Paris Belediyesi’nin, Eiffel Kulesi’nin Türk bayra¤› renkleriyle ›fl›kland›r›lmas›na verdi¤i izin.

Fransa’da Türkiye Mevsimi’, Eiffel Kulesi’nin gölgesinde Mercan Dede konseriyle bafllad›. ‘Turkish Season in France’ commenced in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower with Mercan Dede concert.

words of French origin in Turkish! But the Season is also intended in part as a reply to those who would downplay those relations. “The Turkish image in France may not always be positive,” says Pierret, “but Turkey is a dynamic and changing country. She just has not promoted herself sufficiently in France.” He added: “It would however be wrong to see the ‘Season’ merely as an instrument for politics. The Season is a cultural project above all else. What is important is promoting Turkish culture, overcoming prejudices and initiating a dialogue in every area.” As Görgün Taner sees it, the positive impact of art and culture on the political and socioeconomic agenda is inevitable. “There are strong indications that the Season is going to be an occasion for a political rapprochement between the two countries,” adds Taner. In other words, ‘Turkish Season in France’ is not going to be limited to presenting Turkish culture and art to the French people but is going to have many more benefits for the two countries. A SERIES OF EXCITING EVENTS It’s not easy to sustain the same excitement and interest for nine months in a country like France where following cultural events is such an important part of life. But the Turkish team, which is well aware of the high standard of artistic and cultural offerings in France, has worked hard for two years and put together an extremely diverse program to satisfy the interest and curiosity of the French, who are eager to discover foreign cultures. “The basic focus of the program,” explains Taner, “is to establish a bridge between

Bu bir anlamda Türk kültürünün ‘Tour de France’›. Mevsim sayesinde Türkiye, önümüzdeki 9 ay boyunca; Fransa’n›n kültür, politika ve ekonomi gündeminde üst s›ralarda yer alaca¤a benziyor.

2010 Mart’›n›n sonuna dek sürecek Mevsim; tüm boyutlar›, renkleri ve çeflitlili¤i ile bugünkü Türkiye’yi anlat›yor. The Season, which is going to continue through March 2010, is intended to present today’s Turkey in all its many facets, dimensions and its diverse structure.

past, present and future. Our aim is to show the French the contributions that Turkey can make to the European culture of the future,” adding that the team have portrayed Turkey in a modern approach in every discipline. Contemporary art is one of the mainstays of the Season. An exhibition entitled ‘Istanbul Traversée’ which has been organized by Carolie Naphegyi, one of France’s leading curators of contemporary art, and includes the works of Turkish artists who have proved themselves in the international arena, is a key indicator of this modern outlook. Another point not to be overlooked is the way that French officials have literally mobilized to bring the projects to fruition. For the first time in the history of the Louvre, for example, permission has been given for construction in the Tuileries Garden. A Turkish Coffeehouse, with architectural design by Han Tümertekin, has been set up in an approximately 600-square meter area of the garden and is hoped to be the Season’s meeting place in Paris. Opened on 17 July with a concert by the ‘Bohemians of Thrace’ under the direction of Kudsi Erguner, this venue will remain open until 8 August. The coffeehouse, where conversation and taste are centered around the concept of Turkish coffee, will also host two shows by ‘Kahve Bahane’ (Coffee is just an excuse) in the form of readings with music from literary works describing Istanbul and its coffee culture. Designed as a modern adaptation of the traditional Turkish coffeehouse, the venue will also host exhibitions, workshops and concerts, in a presentation which is inspired by Turkey’s rich cultural history but puts a modern face on that heritage. Yet another distinguishing feature of ‘Turkish Season in France’ is that the Municipality of Paris has given permission for the Eiffel Tower to be illuminated with the colors of the Turkish flag. It is said that the tower up to now has been illuminated only for the Brazil and China seasons. Now, for 21 days from 8 to 29 September, the Eiffel Tower is going to be bathed in red and white light. The illumination will begin with the opening of an exhibition, ‘From Byzantium to Istanbul: Port of Two Continents’, at the Grand Palais, one of France’s most respected exhibition venues. Included in the exhibition, which will continue through January 2010, are items culled from Turkey’s leading museums such as the Topkap› Palace Museum, the Istanbul Archaeological Museum and the Museum of Turkish and Islamic Art, as well as from the Louvre, the French National Library and other leading museums in Europe. A CUP OF COFFEE ‘Turkish Season in France’ is opening the door to the establishment of fruitful and long-term relations between Turkey and France. A number of artists and cultural institutions in both countries have already begun producing joint projects. Since it opened last October, for example, 104, one of France’s leading forums for art, has been developing projects jointly with Istanbul’s Garajistanbul. Meanwhile, the Cité International des Arts in Paris has rented a workshop which will give artists from Turkey an opportunity to work for the next twenty years. Four-hundred events at close to 80 sites around France means an enormous list encompassing everything from music and literature to film and contemporary art, from theater and classical music to dance and street art. This is, in a sense, Turkey’s ‘Tour de France’. The Season looks putting Turkey at the top of France’s cultural, political and economic agenda for the next nine months. There’s a saying in French: ‘One swallow does not make a spring.’ Let’s not forget however that for us a cup of bitter coffee means forty years of friendship!

ublished in both French and English, Elif fiafak’s latest book, Love, in which she describes the emotion in all its aspects, is circumnavigating the world. “Istanbul inspires me,” says fiafak, like a typical writer, who has one foot rooted in place like the point of a compass while the other goes round and round. Just like her stories which are “very local on the one hand, but equally universal on the other.” Albert Camus said, “A writer writes to be read by the majority. Let us applaud those who claim the opposite, but let us not believe them.” Could we say that Love is a book you wrote for the reader? Every writer wants to be read. I have to be able to say that sincerely. And of course every writer wants to be read by more people. This too strikes me as completely natural. Writing to please the reader on the other hand is something else. When I write, I focus only on the story. The important thing for me is to love the work I’m doing and to do the work I love. While I was writing Love I was constantly wandering in an imaginary world. I wrote this book with love. I did not write it ‘for the reader’. But of course I wrote it to be read. You wrote a graduate thesis entitled ‘The Deconstruction of Femininity Along the Cyclical Understanding of Heterodox Dervishes in Islam’. Did that and the intellectual approach you developed in fifteen years of reading bring you slowly but surely to the writing of Love? I discovered mysticism completely on my own fifteen years ago. It was not a culture I saw around me or that I found in my family. The more I read about it, the more I liked it. My appetite for it increased the more I read. Mysticism was actually there for me as a sub-text in almost all my novels. It was like a shadow that always followed me, sometimes more explicitly, sometimes more implicitly. This time I raised all the curtains. Mysticism is not something you can learn overnight. You have to live it, experience it in your heart. It is a long, difficult and rough road...

Burada söyleflinin yolu inançla kesifliyor. ‹çinde ‘ruhaniyet’ ve maneviyat’› bar›nd›ran bir kesiflme bu. Evet, söz sizde… ‹nanç benim için önemli bir mesele. Ama benim için aslolan flekil de¤il, öz. O özün evrensel ve bir oldu¤una inan›yorum. Bence hepimizin tasavvufa ihtiyac› var. Tasavvufun en çok sevdi¤im özelliklerinden biri özelefltiriye dayanmas›. Sufiler kendilerini elefltirir, kendi içlerini tamir ederler. Birinde kusur görürlerse o kusuru örterler. Muazzam bir edep ve ahlak... Bunlar› ben fikren ve zihnen biliyorum ama yaflamaya gelince tabii ki zorland›¤›m oluyor. Mesela tasavvufun insana ö¤retti¤i ‘hiçlik’ bilinciyle yazarl›¤›n insana verdi¤i fliflkin ego aras›nda derin bir çeliflki var.

Romanc›l›k bana diyor ki ‘Bu kitab› sen yazd›n, sen yaratt›n.’ Tasavvuf bana diyor ki ‘Sen sadece arac› olup hikâyeyi ilettin. Yaratmad›n, yarat›ld›n! Kalem gibi, k⤛t gibisin. Kelimeler senden ak›yor. Ama onlar›n sahibi de¤ilsin...’ Bazen bu çeliflkiyi çok yo¤un yafl›yorum. Ama çeliflkilerle ilerleyece¤iz bu dünyada.

This brings us to the subject of faith. In the sense rather of ‘morality’ and ‘spiritualism’... Faith is a very important issue for me. But what is important for me is not the form but the essence. I believe that essence is universal and one. In my opinion, we all have a need for mysticism. One of the things I like best about mysticism is that it is based on self-

“Bir sürü ar›zam, tak›nt›m, kusurum var. Ama bu ar›zalar› kutsamak yerine düzeltmek ve iyilefltirmek için çaba harcamak önemli.” “I have a lot of faults, flaws and hang-ups. But rather than exalting those flaws, it’s important to try to improve and correct them.”

criticism. The Sufis criticized themselves, they reformed their souls. If they saw a flaw in one of their members, they would cover it up. This shows tremendous decorum and moral decency. I know these things intellectually, but when it comes to practicing them in my life I of course find it difficult. There is a profound contradiction, for example, between the inflated ego that writing gives a person and the awareness of ‘nothingness’ that mysticism teaches. Writing novels tells me, ‘You wrote this book, you created it.’ Mysticism tells me, ‘You are only the instrument for conveying the story. You did not create it, you were created! You are like pen and paper. The words flow out of you. But you are not their owner...!” Sometimes I experience this contradiction very intensely. But it is through contradictions that we advance in this world.”

You have written nine very different books, because Elif fiafak changes from day to day. ‘The Bastard of Istanbul’, ‘Black Milk’, and ‘Love’ are one thing; Pinhan (The Sufi) and Mahrem (The Gaze) are another. There are even those who believe your language, style and sense of plot have regressed. Was this a conscious choice, or is it something that just happens? Writing is a continuous journey. I don’t want to cast anchor at only one port, I don’t want to repeat myself. However a story comes to me, that’s how I write it. With my intuition, rather than by consciously inventing a plot.

“Yazarl›¤›n tek bir reçetesi yok. Nas›l parmak izlerimiz farkl› farkl›ysa yollar›m›z da farkl› farkl›.” “There is no single recipe for writing. Our ways as writers are as different as our fingerprints.”

I give myself completely to the work I’m doing. Other doors are opened in my brain, doors that are closed in everyday life. I become totally swept up in the flow of the writing when I write. It’s something that just happens, in other words. The concept of family is something you became acquainted with midway through your life. Do you like it? Is it good? I lived like a nomad until I was thirty-five years old. Always carrying my shell around from place to place. I had no concept of a ‘nest’. I thought I didn’t care about such things. But it seems inside me there was also a woman who loves home life and thinks it’s important. It was very difficult to balance that with my writer’s side. Of course, voices can still conflict inside me. I still withdraw and go away from time to time. Wanting to withdraw and go away on the one hand, family responsibility on the other... Isn’t that difficult for you? For a woman writer, familial responsibilities are lovely and enriching as well as difficult at times. I grew up as an only child. I treasured my solitude. Writing in any case is the loneliest of the arts. Sometimes my ‘nomadic and independent’ side conflicts with my ‘domestic and dependent’ side. Writing is a selfish passion. You give yourself completely to your writing. The thing women writers who are mothers most feel a need for is ‘free time’. To tell you the truth, I was scared to death of this change at first. I suffered from postnatal depression after the birth of my child. I wrote Black Milk. In the book I exposed the dilemma between motherhood and writing. I revealed aspects

kendini yeniden infla etmek için f›rsat veriyor. Yani her depresyon ayn› zamanda bir ‘tamirat ve tadilat’ dönemi. Siyah Süt benim tek otobiyografik eserim. Kendimi bu kadar açt›¤›m ve anlatt›¤›m tek kitap. Kendimle samimiyetle yüzlefltim ve sonras›nda gelen huzurla AfiK’› yazd›m. Siyah Süt’teki Kapal›çarfl› sahnesini anlat›r m›s›n›z? Hani boncuklar, çay bardaklar› ve sizin ‘Ah Mine-l Aflk’ dedi¤iniz… Kitab› okumayanlar için... Evlilik karfl›t› bir kad›n›n sevdi¤i erke¤e evlenme teklif etti¤i bölüm... Bu benim bafl›mdan geçti.

Yo¤un çal›flan bir gazeteciyle gezgin bir yazar nas›l götürüyor birlikteli¤i? Ben de eflim de evlilik kurumuna çok s›cak bakmayan insanlard›k.

Ama Eyüp (Can) de, ben de esnek insanlar›z. O benden çok daha sab›rl› ve sakin. Ben de ö¤reniyorum. Güzel bir evlilik öyle bir günde ya da bir ayda kurulan bir fley de¤il. Her gün u¤rafl vermek gerekiyor. Kendine göre zorluklar›, inifl ç›k›fllar› var. Önemli olan aflk›n devam etmesi. Aflk yoksa evlilik solgun, aflk varsa evlilik güzel oluyor. En önemlisi k›ymet bilmek.

of myself that were not at all in my interest and I made light of them. It caused me a lot of pain as I wrote. But in the end a candid book emerged. And writing that book balanced me and made me well.

“Benim iflim kelimeler, hikâyeler, hayaller üretmek.” “My job is to produce words, stories, dreams.”

You expressed your dilemmas, your upheavals, and your struggles with yourself in Black Milk. So are you now a very different, much more tranquil Elif fiafak? Depression gives a person a chance to renew herself, to invent herself all over again. In other words, every bout of depression is at the same time a period of ‘repair and reconstruction’. Black Milk is my only autobiographical

work. The only book in which I have opened up and described myself to this extent. I confronted myself frankly, and in the calm that came afterwards I wrote Love. Could you describe the Grand Bazaar scene in Black Milk for those who have not read the book? I mean the beads, the tea glasses, what you called your ‘Oh, what we won’t do for love!’. That’s the chapter in which a woman who is opposed to marriage proposes to the man she loves. It actually happened to me. I was making fun of myself as I wrote it. By Turkish standards you I’m somebody who married ‘late’. I was regarded as an ‘old maid’. These criteria are only for women of course. How do you combine being a writer who travels with being a hard-working journalist? Both my husband and I are people who take a rather dim view of the institution of marriage. To be perfectly frank, marriage is a very difficult proposition for types like me who are fond of their independence. Marriage is not easy for two people who are both intense and attached to their independence. Sometimes we put a strain on each other. But Eyüp (Can) and I are both flexible people. He is much more calm and patient than I am. But I’m learning. A good marriage is not something made in a day or a month. You have to work at it every day. It has its own difficulties, its ups and downs. What is important is that the love continue. If there is no love, then the marriage is dead; if there is love, marriage is wonderful. The most important thing is to know how to value each other.

On their journey from eastern Afghanistan’s Pamir Mountains to the Turkish city of Van, the Kyrgyz Turks have not failed to preserve their age-old traditions.

ake Van sparkles like a bright blue bead in a landscape whose history dates back to the 10th millennium B.C. Home to many powerful civilizations, these lands provided fertility over the centuries, nourishing the peoples who settled there. Gleaming invitingly in the distance, the lake offered a refuge to people seeking a new homeland.

But the struggle waged by the pearl mullet is not unique on these lands. The Kyrgyz who now call it home have made similar journeys. The struggles they have waged for their people and for the legendary figure of their ancestral father Manas still figure prominently in the tales told by the Kyrgyz today. But the heroes who, sporting a white kalpak on their heads like Manas, once moved mountains as they galloped on horseback are gone now. And Khan Hac› Rahman kul Kutlu, who sowed the first seeds of their life on these lands, is no longer among us either. 122 S Y L I F E 8 / 2 0 0 9

FROM PAST TO PRESENT The story of the migration of the Kyrgyz, who left the lands where the Manas legends were penned to live high in the steppes of Eastern Anatolia, goes back 27 years. Inhabiting the cold and barren Pamir highlands, the Kyrgyz lived summer and winter in white felt tents, drinking the milk of their trusty yaks and learning to ride as small children. Living by raising animals, they traded in kind with merchants coming from Kabul. Life in the Pamir Highlands was difficult, but it was the life the Kyrgyz knew.

The people were closely attached to Hac› Rahman kul Kutlu. This khan with the status of a revered elder was a just leader with natural authority who placed

importance on education and learning. A man capable of resolving differences between people. But times change and there came a day when the Kyrgyz, too, were affected by political developments in their region. So the khan gathered his white-bearded elders together and took the decision to migrate. Scorning the interests of the great powers, a handful of Kyrgyz began to seek a new home. Their true home of course was the white felt tents they carried on the backs of their yaks. But finding a new homeland would take them a long time. They traveled first to the city of Gilgit in Pakistan. But the

Kyrgyz, accustomed to living at 3,500 meters, could not tolerate the heat there. Commerce also took the place of livestock raising, and they were unable to adapt to that either. After some of them returned to Afghanistan, Khan Hac› Rahman kul Kutlu decided to migrate again. When an invitation came from Turkey, the Kyrgyz set out. In the end they arrived at the village of Ulupamir in Ercifl township of Van province and made Turkey their new home. Having led his people to these lands, Khan Hac› Rahman kul Kutlu died in Turkey on 6 August 1990. It was he who gave his people a new lease of life, sending up green shoots in a brand new country and a brand new century.

For the young people, who over time have turned their eyes and attention to the big cities and are leaving Ulupamir - some to work, others to study the Pamirs live only in stories.

All the women of the village treat the bride as if she were their own daughter. And every as yet unmarried young woman touches the beads, that fate may smile on her and her desires be fulfilled.

Kyrgyz dishes being heavy on lamb, meat and rice are standard. The stock wedding dishes are stuffed tripe and liver cooked in milk. Nor is a traditional Kyrgyz dinner any different. In villages with big families, meals are eaten on the floor, which is believed not only to enhance the bounty of the table but to stimulate conversation as well. On special days, the Kyrgyz play a game called ‘buskafli’ (gökbö¤ru). Demanding skill and courage, the game is a throwback to their

ancestors of long ago. A forerunner of polo, it involves several players galloping on horseback after the severed head of a young goat. Famous for their prowess as warriors, the men of Central Asia are said to have developed their riding skills and prepared themselves for battle by playing buskafli. The Kyrgyz today preserve their cultural heritage and keep their traditions alive by playing buskafli wherever they live. Turkey has now replaced the homeland they abandoned years ago, and they pursue their existence on the banks of Lake Van, in peace and happiness...

I stanbul is one of the most diverse cities in the world, a city that has it all – fine dining, historic buildings and architecture, tourism – a city balanced gracefully between traditions of old and the innovations of today. What Istanbul and Turkey are not as well known for is their reputation around the world as a center of excellence for healthcare and being one of the top worldwide destinations for affordable medical and dental care. It is estimated 200,000 patients travel from other countries each year to Turkey for health checkups, orthopedics, cosmetic and plastic surgery, dental care, eye care and heart care,

plus many other types of healthcare and surgery. Patients travel from as far as the United States, United Kingdom, Netherlands, Belgium, Azerbaijan, Russia, Bulgaria, Romania, Kosovo, the Middle East and some other areas in Europe. Some of the patients traveling to Turkey are traveling because Turkey has a higher level of quality than in their own home country. Others travel to Turkey for more affordable healthcare. For example, many Americans travel to Turkey because they can receive a savings of up to 76 percent each year. In a recent survey conducted by the Medical Tourism Association*,

Turkey also offers a rich array of non-medical activities for medical tourists. When patients travel for medical care, over 80 percent of patients bring a companion with them, such as a spouse, loved one or family member. Typically patients and their companions spend two to three weeks in the foreign country. Over 95 percent of patients and companions recently surveyed by the Medical Tourism Magazine said they engaged in tourism activities. Istanbul provides many options for patients and their companions. Patients and their companions can visit Topkapi Palace, the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, The Grand Bazaar and Spice Bazaar. The Joint Commission International (JCI) is considered one of the best accreditation agencies in the world for quality. Turkey has the largest number of JCI accredited hospitals in the world. The quality is so high that U.S. health insurance carriers are now starting to contract with Turkish hospitals in order to allow Americans the choice to get their major surgeries done either in the U.S. or in Turkey. Integrated healthcare institutions with thousands of doctors as well as hospitals and polyclinics in scores of different locations

are in the forefront among the institutions accredited by JCI. Some of these facilities are entering into close cooperation with the world’s leading healthcare institutions and organizations. Uncompromising when it comes to patientorientation, these health care institutions adhere closely not only to national but also to international quality standards. While providing high-quality treatment in all the basic branches of medicine, such as oncology, cardiology, gynecology, in-vitro fertilization, neurology, surgery and internal medicine, hospitals in Turkey combine high technology with a patient-friendly environment. The number of healthcare institutions focused on specialization and providing VIP services is growing by the day. PROMOTING COUNTRY FIRST Special consideration is being offered through Turkish Airlines for international patients to receive 25% discount over their system fares from USA to Turkey for both patient and provider with proof of referral from an American physician or acceptance from a Turkish Hospital or doctor. Turkish Airlines is the first to issue such a discount, which clearly demonstrates them as the lead supporter for Turkey in its effort to move forward in the medical tourism industry.

Lezzeti ve aromas›yla öne ç›kan kay›s›, pastac›l›kta da kullan›lan bir meyve. Known for their delicious taste and aroma, apricots are a fruit also used in pies and cakes. VEDAT BAfiARAN

SERVET D‹LBER

eyve kelimesi dilimize Farsça ‘mive’den türetilerek girdi. Orta Asya Türkçeleri’nde ve Anadolu’nun baz› yörelerinde ‘meyve’ yerine ‘yemifl’ terimi kullan›l›r ama meyve kelimesi tan›mlad›¤› tüm türlerin tad›n› tafl›yan melodisiyle dilimize ve dama¤›m›za yerleflmifl durumda.

M

Biz bu yaz›da meyvelerin içinde hem ad›, hem tad›, hem de çeflit çeflit kullan›m›yla kendine has lezzet zenginli¤i sunan koyu sar›, koyu tatl›, kimine göre koyu Malatyal› kay›s›dan söz edece¤iz. Gülgiller ailesinden olan kay›s› meyvesi; erik, fleftali, kiraz ve bademin yak›n akrabas›d›r. Kay›s›n›n gerçek vatan›n›n Çin oldu¤u söylenir. ‹lk olarak Çinliler’in iflledi¤i kay›s›, ‹pek Yolu ticareti nedeniyle ‹ran üzerinden bat›ya do¤ru yay›l›r. ‹ranl›lar kay›s›ya “zard alu” (sar› erik) ad›n› vermifllerdir ki ülkemizde

he Turkish word ‘mevye’, meaning fruit, came into the language from the Persian ‘mive’. Although the word ‘yemifl’ is used in place of ‘meyve’ in the Turkic languages of Central Asia and in some parts of Anatolia, ‘meyve’ has firmly established itself in our language as well as on our palates thanks to its euphonious sound and the wide range of flavors offered by the many species it includes.

T

We are going to talk here about the very dark yellow, very sweet, and, according to some, the very Malatya apricot, which offers a unique richness in terms both of its name and taste and of its wide variety of uses. A member of the Rosaceae family, the apricot is a close relative of the plum, the peach, the cherry and the almond. It is said to have come originally from China.

kay›s›n›n biraz ufak ve ekfli olan›na zerdali denir. Osmanl› dönemi yemek kitaplar›nda zerdali kelimesi kullan›lm›flt›r. Bugün Türkiye’yi de kapsayacak flekilde Himalaya, Çin, Güney Avrupa, Kuzey Afrika ve Kaliforniya hatt›, dünya üzerinde kay›s› kufla¤›n› oluflturuyor. Bezelye boyutundan fleftali büyüklü¤üne kadar farkl› ölçülerde beyaz, gri, siyah, sar› ve pembe renk ve farkl› cinslerdeki kay›s›lar sadece Türkiye ve Türkistan kufla¤›nda yetiflir. Kay›s›, baz› di¤er meyveler gibi kurutulmaya çok müsaittir. Fakat kay›s›n›n kurutulmuflu, di¤er meyvelerinkine k›yasla farkl› özelliklere sahiptir. Lokum yumuflakl›¤›nda olan kuru kay›s›, lifli yap›s›ndan dolay› kabu¤u alt›nda taze aromal› ve nemli bir doku tafl›r. Di¤er meyve kurular› gibi kaskat› de¤ildir ve yumuflamas› için ›slatmaya gerek yoktur. Bu nedenle

lokum veya flekerleme amaçl› tüketim için en sa¤l›kl› seçenektir. Kay›s›n›n aroma ve lezzet bak›m›ndan dünya pastac›l›k sektörünün en çok kulland›¤› yard›mc› ürün oldu¤unu da belirtelim. Malatya ilimiz tart›flmas›z dünyan›n en kaliteli kay›s› çeflitlerini ve yan ürünlerini üretir. Ülkemizde farkl› amaçlarla birçok kay›s› türü yetifliyor. Kurutmal›k kay›s› da bunlardan biri… Kurutulmufl kay›s› çekirde¤i ezmesi (persipan) badem ezmesi gibi (marzipan) pastac›l›k sektöründe kullan›l›yor. Bunlar› tane olarak aktarlarda bulmak mümkün. Fakat uzmanlar kay›s› çekirde¤inden ancak 5-6 tane tüketilmesini önermektedir. “Yeflil iken a¤ar›r / Yavafl yavafl sarar›r / Sarard›kça sallan›r / Salland›kça ballan›r.” Afiyet olsun !

Chinese, the apricot spread westward via Iran thanks to the Silk Road. The Iranians called it ‘zard alu’ (yellow plum), and a somewhat smaller and less sweet variety is known in Turkey as ‘zerdali’, which is also the word used in cookbooks from the Ottoman period. A swath of land stretching across the Himalayas from China to Southern Europe, including Turkey, and as far as North Africa and California constitutes the world apricot belt today. But varieties ranging in size from as tiny as a pea to as large as a peach and in colors ranging from white, grey and black to pink and yellow grow only along a line running from Turkey to Turkestan in Central Asia. Like certain other fruits, the apricot readily lends itself to drying. But dried apricots are very different from other dried fruits. As soft as a morsel of Turkish delight, dried apricots, due to their fibrous properties, retain

their moist texture and fresh aroma beneath the skin. Unlike many dried fruits they are not rock hard and therefore need not be soaked in water before using. For this reason they are easily the healthiest choice for consumption as candy or a snack. I might also point out that apricots are used frequently as supplemental ingredients in the world pastry business for their fine taste and aroma. There’s no disputing the fact that Turkey’s eastern province of Malatya produces the highest quality apricots and related products in the world. Several different species of apricot are produced in Turkey for different purposes, of which drying is only one. Like almond paste or marzipan, a paste made from crushed apricot pits is also used in the pastry sector. Although these pits are sold in herbalist’s shops, the experts recommend consuming only five or six apricot pits at one time. ‘While green it turns white / Then slowly yellows / As it yellows it sways / Getting sweeter all the while” Bon appetit!

 Türk Hava Yollar› Uçufllar› ve Mesafeler - Turkish Airlines Flights and Distances (D›fl Hatlar-International Flights)

Uçufl bilgileri Flight information

 Dergimizin bu sayfas›nda yay›mlanan km ve mil (deniz mili) de¤erleri, uça¤›n uçtu¤u irtifada takip etti¤i rotan›n yer üzerindeki iz düflümünün ölçülen mesafesidir. The distance in kilometres and nautical miles in the table on this page is the projected distance on the ground for the route flown by the aircraft.  Uçaklar›m›z›n içindeki monitörlerde görülen rakam ise, uça¤›n havada katetti¤i mesafedir. The figure shown on the cabin monitors give the actual distance flown by the aircraft through the air, including adjustments of direction to compensate for wind, and other weather conditions.  Türk Hava Yollar› Özel Yolcu Program› Miles&Smiles’da uygulanan mil de¤erleri ise, Uluslararas› Sivil Havac›l›k Teflkilat›’n›n (IATA) yay›mlam›fl oldu¤u rakamlar olup yukar›da yaz›lan mil de¤erlerinden farkl›d›r. The miles used by Turkish Airline’s Frequent Flyer Programme Miles&Smiles are those published by the International Air Transport Association (IATA) and therefore they are different from the distances in miles noted above.

 Please check destination to which your baggage should be labelled and the weight limit permitted by the airline you are flying with. Also check the weight limit marked on your ticket.  Check the size and weight limits for hand baggage allowed in the cabin for the airline you are flying with. Turkish Airlines allows one piece of cabin baggage measuring 23x40x55 cm and weighting a maximum of 8 kg.  Every piece of your baggage should be labelled with your name, telephone number and destination adress. Tags are available from our check-in desks.  Remove any tags and labels from previous journeys.  Please carry valuable goods like jewelry, mobile phone, laptop, documents, etc in your hand baggage.  Baggage packed in sacks, plastic bags, plastic containers, tins and other unsuitable packaging will not be allowed either as check-in or cabin baggage.  Knives, penknives, nail scissors, cigarette lighters and other cutting, piercing and explosive items are not allowed in the cabin for security reasons, so please check that you are not carrying any such items in your hand luggage.  Do not overfill your suitcases and bags beyond their weight or volume capacity. This can lead to the handle breaking and other damage to your baggage. Therefore, baggage exceeding 32 kg. will not be accepted in THY flights. If your baggage exceeds the weight allowance, remember that you will be liable

to pay additional charges.  Present your baggage in your own name, and check the information on the baggage receipts given to you at check-in. Do not register your baggage in the name of another passenger. Remember that in this event you will not be able to claim for lost or damaged baggage.  You may be required to identify your baggage before boarding the aircraft. Please point out each piece of your baggage to the staff member on duty.  On arrival, be careful not to collect baggage resembling your own by mistake.  In the case of luggage that does not arrive at your destination, or that arrives with immediately apparent damage, present your your ticket, baggage claim check and ID to the Lost and Found Office before leaving the airport. With damage that only becomes apparent later, contact the airline in question within seven days of your travel date.  Should your baggage not be traced within 5 days, please apply to the nearest Turkish Airlines office or Baggage Tracing Center with your Property Irregularity Report, original ticket, original baggage receipt(s), excess baggage receipt (if any) and a valid identification document.

fiehri gökyüzünden alg›lamak Taking in the city from the air

Hakan Gürsu, Dr. / Tasar›mc›

Yaflad›¤›m›z flehri gökyüzünden görmek; yönleri, yollar› ve flehrin kritik noktalar›n› alg›lamak her seferinde inan›lmaz bir yaflam deneyimidir. Kâh gece karanl›¤›nda, kâh güneflin p›r›lt›lar› aras›nda bir flehri bafltan bafla saniyelerle ölçülecek bir zaman diliminde katetmenin keyfi; her seferinde insana teknolojinin ulaflt›¤› noktay› ve yaflam›n asl›nda ne kadar h›zl› seyretti¤ini hat›rlat›r. Okyanus ötesi uçufllarda, güneflin do¤uflunu bulutlar›n üzerinde herkesten önce görmenin ayr› bir yeri oldu¤unu belirtmek isterim. ‹stanbul’u havadan görmek ise; her seferinde, flehrin doku zenginli¤ini, do¤al güzelli¤ini ve bo¤az›n çekicili¤ini an›msad›¤›m›z o özel anlar› ça¤r›flt›r›yor. Her uçuflta yeni yaklaflma aç›lar› ile flehri farkl› noktalardan yakalamak; kâh iki yakan›n üzerinden süzülürken, kâh denizin üzerinden alçal›rken tekneleri, sandallar› alg›lamak ve ya¤murda denizin rengini görebilmek her seferinde insan› istemeden etkileyen ve kendine hayran b›rakan yaflam deneyimleridir.

Bir seferinde Hong Kong uçuflunda adalar›n üzerinden geçerken dokunun izleri bana bir anda ‹stanbul’u hat›rlatm›fl; flehirlerin ve yerleflimlerin birbirine ne kadar benzedi¤i hissinin ötesinde bilinçalt›n›n, benzerlikleri hemen yakalad›¤›n› ve bask›n figürün h›zla ön plana ç›kt›¤›n› an›msatm›flt›. Van Gölü’nü haritada görmekle, havadan alg›laman›n fark›n› anlad›¤›m bir baflka yurt içi uçuflu hat›rl›yorum. Bir bahar günü Van’a uçakla giderken efsanevi gölün havadan görüntüsünün ve o mavi-lacivert rengin beni ne kadar etkiledi¤ini hiç unutmad›m, unutamam. K›y›s›nda yer alan çiçek açm›fl beyazl›, pembeli a¤açlar ve lacivert uçsuz, bucaks›z bir su ile o yeflil dokunun do¤al ahengi hep zihnimdedir. Unutamad›m… Uçmak bana her seferinde insan› sürprizlerle buluflturan özel anlar› ça¤r›flt›r›yor. Her inifl an›nda, di¤er kanat aks›nda kim bilir neler gözüküyordur açl›¤› ve merak›, içimde her seferinde yeniden canlan›yor.

Seeing the city we live in from the air, and taking in its many aspects, its roads and its critical points is an incredible experience. Whether by the dark of night or in the sun’s brilliant rays, the pleasure of flying over a city from one end to the other in a matter of a few seconds never fails to remind one of the high level technology has achieved today and how fleetingly life races by. Seeing the sun rise before anybody else high over the clouds on a transoceanic flight is something else entirely. And seeing Istanbul from the air always brings to mind those special moments when we remember the richness of its texture and natural beauty and the sheer allure of the Bosporus. On every flight, one catches the city at different points from new and different angles of approach, whether while gliding in over its opposite shores or descending over the water. One enjoys the pleasure of glimpsing the yachts and rowboats down below, and the color of the sea in the rain. These are experiences that inevitably touch a person and leave him filled with awe.

Once while flying over Hong Kong’s islands on a flight to that city, I was reminded of Istanbul. And beyond a sense of how much cities and places of settlement resemble each other in their texture, I recalled how the subconscious immediately perceives the similarities and thrusts the dominant pattern into the foreground. I remember, too, a domestic flight on which I understood the difference between seeing Lake Van on a map and viewing it from the air. I have never forgotten-and I will never forget-how moved I was when flying to Van one spring day by the sight of that legendary lake and its azure blue color from the air. The natural harmony between its vast azure expanse and the pink and white trees blossoming on its shores are engraved in my mind forever. I have never forgotten... Flying for me is associated with special moments that are full of surprises every time. Who knows what is visible below the other wing at the moment of landing? The eager curiosity this sparks inside me every time is still vivid in my mind.
