The Party last nite was great fun! The night kind of started when I invited Halil, Hatice & Müge at home to meet my mom before the party. We had Turkish coffee, chatted and did some catch up with the news as I hadn't seen Hatiş and Halil for some time. Then we took off for the party only to get stuck in the traffic of Sisli for half an hour. We had to entertain ourselves in the car for a while. After the last traffic light of congestion we speeded up! Wasnt long till we saw the massive tent built up only for this event. As luck would have it, it rained heavily that night and the patways to the tent was all muddy and wet. We then got in the party with another 2-3 thousand people. Had our first drink and saw other friends that were there.. The CEO then turned up to say a couple of words followed by Candan Ercetin, whose live performance we were watching and listening for the first time and we loved it. She was followed by other famous Turkish artists as Emre Altug, Göksel, Zeynep Casalini, Kerem Cem, Levent Yüksel, Burcu Güneş, Ege and Özlem Tekin most of whom we love.. Really enjoyed it.. There is no way that you could find all of these people together at the same night one after the other in any other place. So was pretty cool. After the party we went to Taxim, Nevizade to eat "Kokorec", midye dolma(stuffed mussel) and midye tava (fried mussels) with ayran. That was one of the best bits of the night. Next morning, which is today, we had breakfast all together in my flat.. Big sunday breakfast after a night out was heaven. The guys are still here :) we are reading paper and having cappucino, chattering away, me writing my blog. That was a nice weekend for a long time.
Will put the pics up as soon as Hati sends them!
