Week 4: What is the view from your window right now?
We’ve been living in the same house since 2013, the year we moved to Ankara. When we first moved here, I took a photo of our new home and its view to show to my parents and sister. A few days ago I came across to those photos and when I compared with the current view from our living room window, it was so sad. It’s been only almost 5 years and the change is horrible. And it’s just a little view from our window. The road we drive on everyday sometimes seems unrecognizable to me. Everyday I notice a new building. It gets weird when I visit somewhere that I haven’t been for a while. The buildings rise and rise and they rise higher and higher. Every single one of us, deny it or not, belong to these high grey buildings.
