Be Local

k覺l覺k k覺yafet

To me, being local person where ever I go was always one of the core ideas of the project. I eat from local restaurants, I work with local people, I go where locals go and do what they do. Sometimes if I had enough money I was buying local clothes as well. When you have a short span of time to understand culture and create projects you have to adapt things very quickly.Especiallyin advertising business. I did everything I can to make this happen. I stop carrying mp3 player as well. As a huge music fan I did it on purpose. I wanted to listen people instead of mp3 files. I wanted to adapt to language, and see what kind of people talking about what kind of stuff in each country. What African kids talk about? What are the popular wordsBrazilianteenagers using? These kind of questions are really important when you have to sell some things by advertising in each country. Let’s take a look at world fashion by Designer on the road :) From top left to right here is a list of the traditional clothes I have bought and used on the road: India, China, Sri Lanka, United Arab Emirates, Colombia, Guatemala and El Salvador.

Lokal olmak, her anlam覺yla oran覺n insan覺na b羹r羹nmek benim i癟in bu projenin 繹nemli bir par癟as覺yd覺. K覺sa zamanda insanlarla kaynamak, k羹lt羹re adapte olmak i癟in hep lokal bir yaam s羹rme taraftar覺 oldum. Amerikan fast food zincirleri ya da bat覺l覺 l羹ks restoranlar yerine hep lokal restoranlarda yedim, pop羹ler olmu halk yerlerinde gezdim, insanlar ne yap覺yorsa onlar覺 yapt覺m. yle ki yola 癟覺karken bir mp3 癟alar bile almad覺m yan覺ma. Bir m羹zik sevdal覺s覺 olarak bunu bilerek yapt覺m. M羹zikler yerine oralar覺n seslerini, insanlar覺n覺 ve dilini dinlemek istedim. Bazen s覺k覺lsam da istemesemde… Reklam yap覺p insanlara 羹r羹n satmak i癟in insanlar覺n ne konutuunu 羹lkedeki trendleri ya aral覺klar覺na g繹re pop羹ler olan kelimeleri g繹zlemlemek bu projede m羹zik dinlemekten daha 繹nemliydi pek tabi. Yaln覺z m羹zik dinlemek de gerekiyordu tabi t羹m montajlanacak o videolar i癟in. Bu lokal olma 癟al覺mas覺 bazen bu k覺yafet deiikliklerine kadar vard覺. Maddi g羹c羹m yettiince baz覺 羹lkelerde lokal k覺yafetler de edindim. Hatta oran覺n halk覺 giymeyi b覺rakm覺 olsa bile :) 襤te sol 羹stten sa alta doru bu liste: Hindistan, in, Sri Lanka, Birleik Arap Emirlikleri, Kolombiya, Guatemala, El Salvador.

 

My to do list in life

image_1360782435501087.jpeg

One sunny, hot day in El Salvador… Under the perfect blue sky I was out from agency at the lunch time with my friend Roberto Dominguez (a.k.a Chino). We went to a local pizza restaurant. Not one of that Americanfranchise. A much simple 100% local, cheaper but really tasty place. We ate our pizzas with pleasure. We are chatting while eating. After the lunch he asked me a question: “Dude, how long you gonna live like this? Forever? I think you should do it forever! This is a dream life!” And I answered: “I can’t do this forever man, it’s not easy… I don’t have an exact date to finish this but I have other dreams to achieve which needs a more stable lifestyle. Traveling the world with no money was just one thing, i have others… ” At that moment the bill came after the pizza and Roberto asked again: “What are your other dreams that so important to you?” Then I asked for a pen from the waiter and start writing them on the back of our bill. I didn’t know Roberto kept it. Last night he send me a picture of the bill and he told me that he is gonna keep it forever. How nice eh… And yes I read it once more, liked it again. I wish I can achieve all of them and haveawesomelifetime.

G羹neli, s覺cak bir El Salvador g羹n羹 ajanstan 繹le yemei i癟in 癟覺k覺yorum. Yan覺mda i arkada覺m Roberto Dominguez var. Beraber bir pizzac覺ya gidiyoruz. u 羹nl羹 Amerikan fast food zincirlerinden biri deil. Tamamen lokal, daha g繹sterisiz, ucuz ama gayet lezzetli pizzalar覺 olan bir yer. Roberto ile dilimleri birbiri ard覺na dizerken keyifli bir sohbet sar覺yor bizi. Pizza bitiyor, garsona faturay覺 getirir misin iareti 癟ak覺l覺yor… Fatura beklenirken Roberto bana soruyor: “Ne kadar daha b繹yle yaayacaks覺n? Bunu hep yapabilir misin? 羹nk羹 herkesin hayal ettii bir yaama sahipsin. Bence sak覺n b覺rakma.” Ben de diyorum ki: “Hep b繹yle yaayamam 癟羹nk羹 kolay bir i deil, a癟覺kcas覺 ger癟ekten yoruldum bile diyebilirim. Yapt覺覺m eyi seviyorum ama bu benim hayallerimden sadece bir tanesi. Bu hayatta yapmak istediim baka eyler de var ve bunlar genelde daha stabil bir hayata ihtiya癟 duyan eyler.” O da sordu tabi dier hayallerin nedir peki diye. Tam o esnada garson faturay覺 getirmiti. Ben de bir kalem rica edip getirdii faturan覺n arkas覺na yazmaya balad覺m. B繹yle bir eyi hayat覺mda ilk kez yaz覺yordum ve i癟imden gelen en 繹nemli ilk 5 eyi h覺zl覺ca yaz覺p verdim Roberto’ya. O fatura benim hayat覺m覺n faturas覺 gibi bi ey oldu sanki :) Roberto’nun onu saklayaca覺n覺 d羹羹nmemitim. Ge癟en g羹n bana faturan hala bende ve 繹lene kadar saklayaca覺m diye fotoraf覺n覺 att覺. Kontrol edecekmi ger癟ekletip ger癟ekletiremediimi. Bana ans dileyin listem pek kolay deil.

Simon bags

paket1

Another small thing I did for Siman. They needed some bags and package pattern for mother’s day. So I did this simple one with red stripes. White stripes are transparent. So when you put this package to bag, it completes each otter.

Siman i癟in yapt覺覺m bir baka k羹癟羹k i. Anneler g羹n羹 i癟in 繹zel ambalaj ve poetler istediler. Ben de ilk olarak bu basit 癟izgili olan覺 yapt覺m. K覺rm覺z覺 癟izgiler d覺覺ndaki alanlar transparan. Dolay覺s覺yla kutuyu poete koyduunuzda birbirini tamamlay覺p mesaj覺 oluturuyor.

paket2

These are some other alternatives I did for Siman’s mother’s day bags…

Anneler g羹n羹 繹zel poetleri i癟in baka alternatifler.

Siman cards

simancards

Siman is the biggest shopping mall in El Salvador. They were planning to launch a new card for young people. Since the target group is people aged between 18 to 30 I named the cards as -30 and did several designs. First one I did was a transparent card. Second one was a card which changes it’s color by theenvironmenttemperaturejust like the sweaters we had in 80′s :) All other alternatives are different options for young people to choose from.

Siman adl覺 bir al覺veri merkezi var El Salvador’da. K繹t羹 logolu bu dev al覺veri merkezi gen癟ler i癟in yeni bir kart 癟覺karmak istiyormu. Gen癟ler i癟in d羹羹k limitli bir kart. 18-30 ya aras覺n覺 hedefledikleri i癟in isimini de -30 koydum. eit 癟eit renkli kartlar覺m覺z olsun gen癟ler istediini se癟sin dediler ben de hay hay dedim. Bunlar d覺覺nda bir de effaf olan ve 覺s覺ya g繹re rengi deien kartlar d羹羹nd羹m. T覺pk覺 80′lerdeki kazaklar gibi.

BancoAgricola cards

cards1

BancoAgricola is a bank in El Salvador. They wanted to change their credit card designs with their brand new brand identity. Here where I jump in and help them to design their new card series. Well they have a lot of different cards for different needs. Every card has two versions which are visa and master card. Here you see both editions for the basic, golden and platinum. Every edition has it’s own pattern at the background even for the master card and visa editions.

BancoAgricola bir El Salvador bankas覺. Kolombiyal覺 bir baka banka onlar覺 sat覺n alm覺 ve t羹m kurumsal覺 da bu partnerlikten sonra deimi ve modernize edilmi. imdi de s覺ra kartlar覺 deitirmeye gelmi. Ben de burada devreye girdim ve bankan覺n yeni kartlar覺n覺n tasar覺m覺n覺 羹stlendim. Banka farkl覺 ihtiya癟lar i癟in bir癟ok farkl覺 karta sahip. Her kart覺nsa master card ve visa versiyonu mevcut.

Bu farkl覺 fonlar ortam 覺覺n覺a g繹re renk deitirecek hologramik desenler de i癟eriyor.

cards2

Here are the Black editions at the left. Black is the most exclusive cards for big account owners. The green ones are special “Super selectivos” cards. Super Selectivos is a supermarket here in El Salvador. They have a partnership with the bank. So this card owners can get more discounts or special offers in the Super Selectivos markets. These super Selectivos cards has also one pair of golden editions as well.

Solda “Black” kartlar覺 g繹r羹yorsunuz. Black serisi en 羹st model kartlar oluyor ve en y羹ksek miktarda paraya sahip hesaplar i癟in 癟覺kar覺l覺yor. Yeil olanlarsa Super Selectivos’un 繹zel kartlar覺. Super Selectivos burada bir s羹per marketler zinciri ve bu karta sahip m羹teriler hem 繹zel indirimlere hem de farkl覺 avantajlara sahip oluyorlar. Bu kartlar覺n bir de alt覺n olan versiyonlar覺 mevcut (en sa)

cards3

These are the Debito cards which are just for taking money from ATM’s. They are not credit cards but you can pay in money and use it for shopping anyway. They also have master card and visa in all editions. There is also Netcard in bottom right corner. It’s a card for only internet using.They have safe internet shopping. Upper right is the Business card which is for the companies to only use for company purposes.

Bir de bu debito kartlar var. Debito kartlar k覺saca bizim para kart dediimiz kartlar oluyor. Kredi kart覺 deil ama i癟ine para yat覺rmak ve 癟ekmek m羹mk羹n. Yat覺rd覺覺n覺z miktar覺 karttan da kullanabiliyorsunuz tabiki. Sa altta da Netcard var. O da bankan覺n internet kart覺. 襤nternetten g羹venli al覺veri salayan 繹zel bir kart. Sa 羹stteki ise Business card. irket ad覺na 癟覺kar覺lan bu kart覺 irketin 羹yeleri irket masraflar覺nda kullanabiliyor.

cards4

Mi Negecio (the red one) is “my business” card. It’s for small business owners and the Green one is U travel card. U travel is a traveling agency in El Salvador and they have partnership with this brand so you can save miles or go to trips for cheaper with “Utravel card.”

K覺rm覺z覺 olan k羹癟羹k i yeri sahipleri i癟in “My business” kart覺. Yeil olansa El Salvador’da bulunan bir seyahat acencas覺n覺n 繹zel kart覺. Bu kart覺n sahipleri indirimli seyahatlere ve turlara kat覺labiliyor ve al覺verilerinde mil puan biriktirebiliyorlar.

cards5

Some of the patterns I used for the cards.

Kartlarda kulland覺覺m desenlerden 繹rnekler.

custom cards

Another idea of mine was making the cards custom for each customer. We are going to have a small section for this. The section will let people to upload their own favorite pictures to have as a background on their cards. Their children, favorite art, artists, or the painting that their child did or anything they are passionate about I am sure people can do very creative things with this and it’s not so hard to apply. All we have to do is adding a small section for this to website of the bank. So people can upload their pictures and pan and set the image just like changing profile picture in facebook.

Bir de bu ekilde kiiselletirilebilir kredi kartlar覺 haz覺rlad覺m ki ajans覺n pek houna gitti. Bunun i癟in yapmam覺z gereken ey bankan覺n sitesine bir template sistem kurmak ve insanlar覺n oraya diledikleri g繹rseli y羹kleyip facebook’da profil fotoraf覺 ayarl覺yormucas覺na fotoraf覺 pan ederek ayarlayabilmelerini, kadraja karar verebilmelerini salamak. B繹ylece insanlar arabalar覺n覺, sevgilililerini, 癟ocuklar覺n覺 ya da 癟ocuklar覺n覺n onlar覺 pastel boya ile 癟izdii resmi kredi kart覺na ta覺yabilecekler. Eminim pek yarat覺c覺 eyler 癟覺kacakt覺r.

Abnormal awarded!

I got a special diploma from Monica Herrera University for my presentation “Abnormal” when I was in El Salvador.

Monica Herrera niversitesi’nden takdirname ald覺m :)

Sorry for the bad quality but I was Viva La Ma簽ana’s guest today! An awesome T.V show from El Salvador!

K繹t羹 kalite i癟in 繹z羹r diler sizi 羹lkenin en 癟ok reyting alan program覺 Viva La Manana ile babaa b覺rak覺r覺m. 襤te o show.

Last day in El Salvador

I woke up to my last day in El Salvador in my hotel room. I looked out from the window and let the sunshine fill the room. This was a sunny Sunday and tomorrow I was about to go to Guatemala for my next stop. But before that We decided to enjoy El Salvador one last time with my friends Godo, his girl friend and Mexican… They picked me up from hotel and we went to another paradise place.

El Salvador’da bir Pazar sabah覺 g繹zlerimi a癟覺yorum. Bu buradaki son g羹n羹m. Kalk覺p perdeyi a癟覺yorum ve bir 覺覺k bombas覺 patl覺yor surat覺mda. G羹neten g繹zlerim kama覺yor. Hava s覺cak. Harika bir g羹n. Nas覺lsa gece toplan覺r覺m diyorum 癟羹nk羹 yar覺n sabah erkenden Guatemala’ya gitmem gerek. Ama bug羹n羹 deerlendirmeliyim. Godo, k覺z arkada覺 ve Mexican gelip beni otelden al覺yorlar ve bir baka cennet par癟as覺 mekana g繹t羹r羹yorlar.

This is a club named “Salvadoreno”. It’s beautiful! The entrance is 20 dollars per person but it worths. It’s located in El Sunzal. You can come here for daily trips like us but you can also rent rooms and stay here too.

Bi yere geldik. Kocaman kap覺s覺 繹n羹nde g羹venlik g繹revlileri olan yemyeil bir yer. Kii ba覺 20 dolar 繹dedik i癟eri girmek i癟in. Biraz pahal覺 gibi geldi bana ama i癟eri girince anlad覺m ki asl覺nda 癟ok da fazla deilmi.Salvadoreno adl覺 bir kul羹p buras覺. Bulunduu yere El Sunzal deniyor. Buraya bizim gibi g羹n羹birlik de gelinebilir, oda tutulup kal覺nadabilir.

Pilsener is the beer you should drink when you come to El Salvador. There are other ones as well but Pilsener is my favorite here.

Pilsener burada i癟meniz gereken bira dostlar. Golden molden bi eyler daha var ama bence buran覺n olay覺 Pilsener.

Our daily “to do list”: First pool, then sea and then pool again. This is our day.

G羹nl羹k yap覺lacaklar listemiz 繹yle: Havuz, deniz sonra tekrar havuz.

This is one of that moments in El Salvador. Life can not get any better :) They call it as “Vidaza” here.

Vidaza anlar覺ndan biri. Vidaza’n覺n anlam覺 hayat bundan daha ahane olamaz gibi bir ey burada.

After some pool time we jump in the sea but because of the giant waves wecouldn’tswim much. Then we get out and started to walk towards to El Tunco beach, after a short walk we came to a small Chineserestaurantwhere you can select your ingredients of your food.

Havuzdan koup denize atlad覺k ama o kadar dalgal覺yd覺 ki hi癟 y羹zemedik hatta resmen dayak yedik. Dalgalar覺 yiye yiye deniz bizi geri sahile f覺rlatt覺. G羹zel bir sopa yemitik resmen. Sonra El Tunco sahili boyunca y羹r羹meye devam ettik. Zaten d羹nden s覺rt覺m yan覺kt覺 iyice piirmi oldum enseyi bug羹nle birlikte. harika amele yan覺klar覺m var art覺k. Y羹r羹y羹ten sonra otantik bir in restoran覺na geldik. Burada malzemelerinizi se癟ip kendi men羹n羹z羹 kendiniz yarat覺yorsunuz. Haz覺r yemekler yok.

This is the street where the Chineserestaurantis. Surf boards, hammocks or some bottles of beers all around the corner.

in lokantas覺n覺n yolu. Her k繹ede bir s繹rf tahtas覺 bir hamak bir bira bir eyler.

Brew is a small beer brand that you can only find in here. There is a small beer house here. They are creating this beer. They have 3 different aromas with fruits and they all taste different comparing to any other beer brand. However their logo, packaging or all the branding stuff sucks. One of my friends from the agency did some design for them but they didn’t even care and didn’t buy the thing. That’s weird and something I really hate. They already did the hard part. They created a nice beer but they just don’t understand the importance of branding which is I think much more easier than creating an interesting brand new beer.

Brew diye bir bira var burada logosu adi motorsiklet markas覺 gibi ama tad覺 癟ok g羹zel. Bu biray覺 sadece burada i癟ebiliyorsunuz 癟羹nk羹 burada k羹癟羹k bir evde 羹retiliyor. 3 farkl覺 aromas覺 var. Tropikal meyvelerle ho tatlar yakalam覺lar. Zor olan覺 baarm覺lar ama 癟ok daha kolay olan bu ii giydirme ve markalama iini hi癟 sallamam覺lar. Sallamad覺klar覺 gibi ajanstaki bir arkada覺m覺n onlar i癟in yapt覺覺 bir tasar覺m覺 da almam覺lar. Anlam vermek zor bu durumlara.

Surf. Not swim but surf. This is the perfect place for that.

S繹rf. Y羹zmeden 癟ok s繹rf. Buras覺 bu i i癟in bi癟ilmi kaftan.

And the sunset. Well I don’t know which sunset was the most beautiful one. It’s really hard to pick one. Here? Bali? Cape Town? Medellin? Well. It’s really hard to pick one.

Ve g羹nein bat覺覺 tabi ki. En g羹zeli neredekiydi diye d羹羹n羹yorum ama bulam覺yorum. Buras覺 m覺? Bali mi? Yoksa Cape Town mu? Medellin de fena deildi sanki. Uff zor i.

Goodbye El Salvador, I’m gonna miss you a lot. You were 10 times better than I expected.

Beklediimden 癟ok daha iyi 癟覺kt覺n El Salvador… Sen beni sevdin, ben de seni… Bana yaatt覺覺n t羹m o s羹rprizler, g羹zellikler i癟in teekk羹rler. Gel sar覺l bana kocaman. Gidiyorum ben. zleyeceiz birbirimizi..

Saturday sailing

A nice bright sunny Saturday we met up with boys to sail together. Fake Turk (Herbert) has a boat. So we took his pickup and hit to road to get his boat. It was a nice trip. First we went to the super market and bought lots of chips and drinks, water, juice, beer whatever we need. We load them all to a white box at the trunk of the car. Filled it with many bags of ice to keep them cold. Here we are ready to sail!

Harika, g羹neli bir cumartesi g羹n羹, ajanstan 癟ocuklarla topla覺yoruz. Ama癟 tekneyle a癟覺l覺p o sahil benim bu sahil senin dola覺p elenmek. Fake Turk’羹n (Herbert) bir botu varm覺. nce kamyonete atlay覺p kasas覺n覺 i癟ki ve yiyecekle dolduruyoruz. Sonra da yola 癟覺k覺p botu kamyonete takmak ve suya indirmek i癟in tam gaz yol al覺yoruz.

Here we are in Estero Jaltepeque. Going for the boat… This door in the middle of nowhere was quite surprising for me. It leads to a paradise lookingenvironment.

45 dakika belki 1 saatlik bir araba yolculuunun ard覺ndanEstero Jaltepeque’ya vard覺k. Burada Fake Turk’羹n botu bizi bekliyor. Kamyonetin arkas覺na tak覺p 癟ekerek suya indireceiz. Yolda giderken aniden durup soldaki bir kap覺ya giriyoruz. Ger癟ekten d羹md羹z yolun ortas覺nda yemyeil bir cennete a癟覺lan b繹yle bir kap覺 olmas覺 癟ok garip geldi bana.

The Estero de Jaltepeque is surrounded by beautiful estuary mangrove reserves flora and fauna. Depending of the season you can watch how marine turtles spawn their eggs. We started by discovering some islands and having drinks in the boat. I was feeling very nice and and everything was getting better and better in every second.

Estero de Jaltepeque bir doa harikas覺 arkadalar, kaplumbaalar, kular, b繹rt羹ler b繹cekler tam bir doal yaam s羹r羹yor etrafta. Sal覺 sollu adalar g繹r羹yorsunuz botu s羹rd羹k癟e. Bu adalar覺n sahillerinde konulanm覺 basit tahta evler var. S羹per l羹ks, y羹ksek teknoloji eyler deil. M羹tevazi evcikler. Yolculua botun i癟inde biralar覺m覺z覺 yudumlay覺p bu adalar etraf覺nda gezinerek balam覺 olduk.

Life can not be any better than this. My greatest friends and me in a boat, sailing in the middle of a paradise and drinking our local drinks. This is life my friends.

Hayat bundan daha iyi olamaz. En sevdiim arkadalar覺mla k羹癟羹k bir teknedeyim, kasa kasa lokal i癟eceklerimiz bir buz y覺覺n覺n覺n i癟inde g繹m羹l羹 bizlerle, etraf cennet par癟as覺, yeil ve mavinin her tonu alabildiine uzan覺yor teknenin h覺z覺yla u癟uan su damlalar覺 ve r羹zgar bedeninizi okuyor ve Godo delisi deli gibi ark覺 s繹yl羹yor.

We had radio and alsomp3player plugged to speakers. A small boat sea disco of our own. :)

Botun radyosu ve mp3 癟alar覺 sayesinde deniz ortas覺nda minik bir diskomuz oluyor.

Mafia, Gaby, Godo, Jesus, Fake Turk and me. We were the heroes of thisSaturdayand I never wanted to end it. Pure endless fun every second. It was my lastSaturdayand Gaby was telling me that how much I am gonna miss El Salvador when I jump to Guatemala. They told me to come back if i really can’t be happy there. They said I can stay in their houses as much as I want. How awesome they are. I invited them all to my house in Turkey as well. I hope they will come one day and I am gonna show them a big Turkish experience.

Mafia, Gaby, Godo, Jesus, Fake T羹rk ve ben ekip olarak bu cumartesinin kahramanlar覺y覺z. Hi癟 bitmemesini istediim bug羹n her ge癟en dakika daha da g羹zelleiyor. Daha g羹zel ne olacak en top nokta u an herhalde diyorum hop 2 dakika sonra daha da s羹per hissediyorum. Arkadalar Guatemala’ya gidince buray覺 癟ok 繹zleyeceksin diyorlar ve ekliyorlar Guatemala’l覺lar El Salvador insan覺 kadar s覺cak ve canayak覺n deil. Orada mutsuz hissedersen atla gel bizim evlerimizde kalabilirsin istediin kadar. Can ite bunlar. Hepsini 繹perim. Zaten hepsini 襤stanbul’a da davet ettim, bir g羹n gelirlerse en harika ekilde a覺rlayaca覺m.

Our boat was going from island to island in the middle of greens. There is nothing but sea,green trees and blue sky. Everything you need to put a big smile on your face. (and Godo as well, he makes you smile even if you are in a shit hole.)

Teknemiz bir adadan 繹tekine ge癟iyor ve yol boyu etraf覺m覺z覺 癟eviren yeillikler i癟inde ilerliyoruz. Burada bu yemyeil aa癟lar覺n 繹rd羹羹 duvarlar, masmavi g繹ky羹z羹 ve denizden baka hi癟bir ey yok. Teknenin h覺z覺yla r羹zgar ve u癟uan su damlac覺klar覺 羹zerinize geldik癟e bu s羹per temiz havay覺 soluyor ve surat覺n覺za sa癟ma bir tebess羹m konduruyorsunuz.

I don’t understand much of Mafia’s English when he gets drunk. :) I don’t know how but his English jumps fromadvancedtobeginnerlevel when he drinks a couple of beers. :) Hey Mafia! I love you bro heaheha…

Mafia i癟ince 襤ngilizcesi ortaokul seviyesine geriliyor. Hi癟bir ey anlayam覺yorum adam sanki gidiyor yerine baka biri geliyor.

Guys serving drinks… Never ending supply. I don’t know how many beers we had that day but it was quite a lot. I take off my t-shirt since the boat splashing too much water over us in high speeds. However I had a red back at the end of the day. It still hurts though. I hate sunburn.

Bizimkiler i癟kileri servis ediyor :) Ka癟 ie bira vard覺 o buzlar覺n aras覺nda bilmiyorum ama baya 癟oktu. Bot h覺zlan覺nca i癟eri 癟ok su atmaya balad覺 biz de t-shirtleri 癟覺kard覺k ama g羹n boyu 繹yle fena yanm覺覺m ki g羹n羹n sonunda koltua bile oturam覺yordum s覺rt ac覺s覺ndan. Uyumak bile eziyet olacakt覺 2 g羹n ama o an her eyden habersiz b繹yle s覺r覺t覺yordum ite.

One of the islands we have visited was Isla Tasajera. A beach in the middle of nowhere. It was like we had our own lost island and nobody can see or hear us. Good times…

Isla Tasajera diye bir adaya geldik. Buras覺 hi癟bir hayat belirtisi olmayan bir 癟eit lost adas覺 gibi bir yerdi. Kendimize ait bir adam覺z olmutu resmen. Demir att覺k burada ve sahile 癟覺k覺p biralar覺m覺z覺 yudumlad覺k. Bir saat kadar y羹z羹p geyik yapt覺ktan sonra tekrar teknede ald覺k soluu.

We swam and chatted for a while there. After some beers we jumped to the boat again to go to a restaurant to have some real sea food.

Aday覺 kendi yaln覺zl覺覺yla babaa b覺rak覺p bal覺k yemek i癟in restorana doru k覺rd覺k d羹meni.

Here we tie our boat and jump in the house. Imagine a house in the middle of the sea with no walls, covered with greens all around, no technology, no internet, no computers, no cellphones… Just nature, you,hammocksandbarbecue.

Botu buraya balad覺k. Buras覺 duvars覺z, tamamen doal mazlemelerle yap覺lm覺 teknolojiden ve modern yaant覺dan uzak bir ev. Evin sahibi kad覺n para kar覺l覺覺 bize g羹zel bal覺klar ve deniz mahs羹lleri piiriyor. Kendi ge癟imini de bu ekilde sal覺yormu. Denizin orta yerinde internetten, bilgisayardan ve cep telefonlar覺ndan uzak b繹yle bir yaant覺 癟ok ilgin癟 geliyor kulaa.

ActuallyI would like to live in this house to write my book. At least maybe some months, it could be awesome to focus and remember what really happened in these past 2 years on the road. I really need that. I need to shut down allunnecessarythings out of my mind and focus on the book in the middle of nowhere. I don’t want things to disturb me or steal my time & attention.

D羹羹n羹yorum asl覺nda buraya bir masa at覺p kitab覺 burada yazmak harika olabilirdi. Burada dikkatinizi ne da覺tabilir ki? Tek yapabileceiniz ey ge癟en 2 seneyi d羹羹n羹p yazmak. Daha iyi bir yer olamaz ger癟ekten bu i i癟in.

I felt how I was tired when I lay down on the hammock while waiting for the fishes to get ready.

Hamaa yay覺l覺nca anl覺yorum nas覺l yorulmu olduumu. Ben burada sallan覺rken teyzemiz bal覺klar覺 haz覺rl覺yor.

This is toilet at the right picture. You may ask where is the toilet? This is it… Yes you use that small hole near the wood floor :) I told you there is no technology or modern things here.

Bu sada g繹rd羹羹z mekan tuvalet, kenardaki boluktan sal覺yoruz ne varsa.

After dinner we tried to take a small trip with the small canoe. Jesus and me made some circles and then came back to boat to move back to city of San Salvador. I used the boat for a while as well. It was my first time and I really enjoyed to drive a seavehicle. Well it was an amazing day at the end. One of the top days of the journey. I am sure I will look at these pictures at the future and say, these were the days! Shit man. I’m gonna miss these moments. I’m sure about it.

Yemekten sonra restoranda bal覺 olan teyzenin kanosuna biniyoruz izin isteyip. Jesus ve ben denizin ortas覺nda salak gibi 2 daire 癟izip restorana geri d繹n羹yoruz. Tekneye atlay覺p d繹n羹 yoluna koyuluyoruz. Karn覺m覺z tok s覺rt覺m覺z pek yan覺k. Tekneyi bi ara ben kullan覺yorum, pek elenceliymi tekne s羹rmesi. Nas覺lsa 癟arpacak bir yer yok gereksiz saa sola gidiyorum bazen elenmek i癟in. Neyse ite g羹zel g羹nd羹 be bug羹n. Hane yolculuun unutulmayacak g羹nlerindendi. Y覺llar y覺llar sonra bu fotoraflara bak覺p i癟 ge癟icereceim kesin. Vay be ite o zamanlar benim zamanlar覺md覺 diyeceim garanti.
