The Kite Runner

January 4, 2015

Another deeply moving book by Afghan-American author Khaled Hosseini ‘The Kite Runner’. The universal themes of¬†friendship, betrayal, guilt, redemption and love rendered in most intricate ways.

What is the price of betrayal, how lies in the long-run change lives, when redemption indeed makes a difference Рevery sentence keeps you eyes full of tears and your heart full of sympathy. A novel that reads as an unforgettable memoir.

January 2, 2015

I only recently discovered Istagram and its world of fantastic photos. Taskin Kayikcioglu is IT Director at GROUPAMA SIGORTA & EMEKLILIK, Turkey but his amazing shots shooting at perfection rather remind of the National Geographic Society. See for yourself his remarkable gallery here >>>
