Finally, it has been snowing properly in Istanbul. The town became white, silent and empty. In Fener, all the kids and even couple of scarfed women were doing snow ball fights! We walked by the Golden Horn. The waters were greyish and the side bright white... Everyone is looking from their windows. It is very calm but there is a strange excitement in the air. We walked in Istiklal Caddesi which was as full as usual. We came back home by taxi... and were part of a funny slow motion race of cars on the snow. Et puis maman m'a fait un pot-au-feu.
