At My Childhood Home in Ankara - Pictures from 1987 and 2017

Until I was about five years old, my family lived on the top floor of an apartment building with peculiar, green-tinted windows, in the Çankaya district of Ankara, Turkey's capital city. I fondly remember the green windows, and a sense of warmth, family, order and safety...

Afterwards my family and I moved to Istanbul, where, aside from a few work-and-study-related foreign episodes, I still live to this day.

Whenever I visit Ankara, I always pass by our old family apartment. It still stands, full of life-sustaining memories... Our old home was on the top-right portion of the building in this photograph, with an open window. One of my life ambitions is to move back to this house, sometime in the future...
