I'm hosting a year-long blog carnival to celebrate Istanbul European Capital of Culture 2010....
For a worldwide audience (11 million foreign visitors are expected to descend on Istanbul next year), I'll be curating a feature at expat+HAREM, the global niche to highlight the best personal perspectives on Istanbul from around the web and around the world.
I'm looking for provocative posts and webpages that fit the expat+HAREM world view, touching on the crossroads and dichotomies of this hybrid metropolis… modern existences in historic places; deep-rooted traditions translated in mobile times; limiting stereotypes revisited for wider meaning.
Please share with any Istanbul-lovers you know -- and consider submitting a link of your own, fresh or classic! Details here: http://tr.im/Hv15
