Lasting memories

June 10, 2012

At some places I feel at home and being away from them for a while makes me home-sick. One such place for me is Istanbul – the sights, the sounds and the atmosphere bringing me back there time and again. Spectacular view from Pierre Loti on the hilltop overlooking Eyup and the Golden Horn:

In winter or any time – same and always different.

And the actual Museum of Innocence where Time disappears – finally inaugurated.

“It was the happiest moment of my life, though I didn’t know it…”

The actual museum contains all the objects  that chronicle the love described in the book.
