lazy weekend

12 nov.

yesterday and today were two lazy days for us. the first half of the day i had to organize the things i should send earlier so that my baggage will not be over the limit. i also organized all the readings we had to study for an exam. i then had lunch, took a shower and then had tea with my Fatos and my dear Gonchi. (my other favorite man, Cliffor, went to Sienna for the weekend.)

in the evening after dinner, we went to see a theater production, Don Quixote. after the show was finished at around 11PM, we walked around town to search for some coffee or hot chocolate. can you imagine that it took us an hour and a half to find one? hay, Torino is really incredible. it was saturday night and all the bars were closed.

anyways, we found a bar, sit for around 40 minutes. afterwards, we didnt find a bus nor a tram in the area. we walked for another hour and a half looking for a taxi and there was none. it was really crazy because when we finally found the taxi it was already 4am.

what an adventure…

13 nov.

today, we spent the first half of the day, of course sleeping. after lunch we watched a movie about the Women Oppression in Afghanistan, the title is OSAMA. it was unfortunate that it was in Arabic language with subtitles only in Turkish language because it was Fatos (a Turkish Cypriot) who brought it from her country. but we managed to understand from the scenes and also with the kind translation of Fatos. I feel pity to the women who are abused and oppressed by stupid men who think they are lords. Excuse me, but I would say, fuck them! and it is not just about the imbalance of power but the entire extremist thinking – women cannot go out of the house without a male companion. ridiculous!

now, i am answering my e-mails…
