Limping Butterfly

I am sitting on a dock, watching a powerboat race in Istanbul's harbor. As I watch a chase helicopter daringly fly underneath the bridge, it dawns on me: I am sitting on a dock, watching a powerboat race in Istanbul's harbor! Unreal.

It certainly has felt lıke an unreal life that I have been leading for the past four months. As reality slowly seeps back into my consciousness, I realize that I will soon be undergoing a metamorphisis. It'll be much like watching a homely catepillar turn into a beautiful butterfly... but in reverse. In four days time I'll leave behind (what today feels lıke) an international jet-setting lıfe and transform into an unemployeed deadbeat with a sea urchin induced limp. Come and get it ladies!

But for now, this butterfly is going to walk over and check out Dolmabahce Palace and its crystal piano. Unreal.
