    Kuvaus :

    “Through the trembling windows in the rear of the ship’s upper deck, I watched the Golden Horn’s landings slowly flowing past, and its hills covered with the wooden houses of old Istanbul, and its cypress-filled cemeteries: and endless strings of little factories, shops, chimneys, tobacco warehouses, ruined Byzantine churches, the most magnificent Ottoman mosques rising above its dingiest and narrowest streets, alleyways, dark hills, shipyards, rusting hulls of ships … the Church of the Pantocrator in Zeyrek, the great tobacco warehouses of Cibali, and even the shadow of Fatih Mosque far in the distance – through the ship’s clouded, trembling windows, this midday scene seemed, like the Istanbul views I saw in disintegrating old movies, as dark as midnight.”

    Orhan Pamuk, Istanbul: Memories of a City, translated by Maureen Freely, Faber and Faber, London, 2005, pp. 314-315.
