It's January 13th and I arrived yesterday

I arrived on the day the bombing in Istanbul had happened and since then the project feels so very far away. The area I'm staying, my neighbourhood is calm and the people are speaking with kind and low voices. Hints of despair has taken hold of daily life. Don't think it matters much taht it's winter and raining a lot. I try to focus on the news or the lack of it, putting things together through facebook and twitter. It doesn't really matter. You overcome fear by going outside. Out of the house into the streets, so tomorrow I'll step outside, into the world, again.
