Drains....

So there’s a new bridge being opened today, that will be three across the Bosphorus straits. I have a feeling that it will instantly become a heavy traffic jam, the considerable growth in car usage here over a generation means investment in transport will always be lagging behind. 

We on the other hand are all praying fervently for the completion of a new metro line from Üsküdar to Çekmeköy which will alleviate the need for tens of thousands of commuters to be squashed into minibuses for a torturous journey into the Anatolian hinterland of the city.

As for drains. Well apparently I am not the only one to be captivated by the sight of a good drain cover. It turns out the the leader of the British Labour Party (the opposition to the Conservative government of the UK) also loves drain covers. One article in a British newspaper explains the leaders passion for these large metal sculptures that adorn our streets.
