Although because of my left over habbit from my professional life I long for Sundays to come but usually get bored towards the end of the day... When I get bored I insist going out for a drink. Our general routine is like this but the Sundays of the last two weeks were quite pleasant. Last week as you know I was in İstanbul and this was the view that I was looking at while having a conversation with my cousin ... In any case the view is gorgeous but the flowers were really adding up.
Ve bu Pazar ise Hipodrom'a at yarışlarını seyretmeye gittik. Bir arkadaşımız epeydir söylüyordu "beraber gidelim, çok keyifli oluyor" diye. Bir kaç kerede niyetlendik ama gidememiştik, bu Pazar gittik sonunda. Hakikaten keyifliymiş. Yarışlar başlamadan hemen önce gittik ve akşama kadar yedik- içtik, bahis oynadık, kazandık-kaybettik ama neticede çok güzel ve değişik bir Pazar geçirdik. Bu güne kadar at yarışlarını sadece filmlerde izlemiş olduğum için ilkin kafamda şık bir şapkanın olmamasının ezikliğini yaşamış olsam da, şapkasız kafamla da gayet güzel idare ettim.
And this Sunday we went to watch the horse races at the hippodrome. One friend had been telling us "lets go together, it's good fun" for quite a while. Although we'de intended to go a couple of times we couldn't but this Sunday we made it in the end. It really was fun. We went there just before the races started and ate and drank, made bets, won and lost but in the end had a nice and different Sunday. As I'de only seen a horse race in the movies, at first I felt bad about not having a elegant hat on my head but managed well with my head without a hat.
