Hola Buenos Aires ­čĺĽ

T├╝rk├že i├žin a┼ča─č─▒ devam ediniz Ôťî´ŞĆ

I am finally here, in Buenos Aires Ôś║´ŞĆ I was expecting to feel strange in my first days as I would be in an unknown country. But from the first minute I stepped, I feel like I am in a place that I visited before. I lived in Spain for a while and I speak spanish. So maybe because of that I don’t feel like I am a stranger.

On my journey, I wish to use Couchsurfing. So I can be well connected to the local people and I can learn the culture easily. If I had stayed in a hostel, I would have been a totally tourist that I hate it. I want to be with young people from the city. I want to see where they get drunk, where they drink coffee to chill out or where the best spots are.

Argentinian people are so helpful to anyone. I’ve already made friends on the plane. One of them helped me to find the bus to go to the city center. The other one was a sweet 60 years old lady which I will meet her to drink a coffee after 2 hours. It’s hard to be unhappy here.

As I planned before, the first day of mine was the first day of spring. Everybody was on the streets to have mate (argentinian tea) and was celebrating the spring.

On my second day, my host Juan and I went out to walk around the city. Well we walked 14 kilometers. Yeah, we walked so much. But he showed me very lovely places of Buenos Aires and it was worth to walk Ôś║´ŞĆ I hope you enjoy to read them as much as I enjoyed to see them.

First of all, we went to Bosques de Palermo where there are a lot of huge parks. Each parks has a theme. It is a place very green. You can see the colorful birds and white gooses swimming in the lakes. As it was a week day, it wasn’t so crowded. But I learnt it is so crowded on weekends. People go there to have mate, play football (of course), sun bath. We visited the park of Rosedal where there are a lot of roses and statues. Then we visited Eduardo S├şvori Museum which is a small but cute museum.

Then we went to Recoleta. Recoleta is kind of touristical center. There is Cementario de la Recoleta which is a huge cementery where the rich and important people buried. It was a shocking thing for me. Because there are no graves there. There are little houses for every person. All of them is like an artwork.

We passed to Centro Cultural Recoleta which is a museum of modern art. We saw a lot of lovely pieces. Then we went to Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes where there are classical artworks.

All of the museums are free to enter. Only we paid for Eduardo S├şvori Museum. It was like 1ÔéČ for an enterance. I don’t know why we paid there. Because my host said that it was free before. Well 1ÔéČ is not expensive neither Ôś║´ŞĆ

After walking 14 kilometers, we deserved a great dinner. So we went Bellagamba which is a restaurant they make argentinian pies. It is in Palermo where I stay. It was a very cheap place. So if you come to Palermo, I recommend to you go there to eat some local food.

Between 20 – 25 September, there is a festival in the city. It’s called Festival Ciudad Emergente. It has so many stages around the city. There are categories as music, art, humour. And all of activities are free as well. I didn’t have a chance to go one of them. But I’m planning to go to a concert of it.

Today it’s my last day in that house. I am changing my host. After a week, I will be in Montevideo, Uruguay. So I gotta see some tango shows before I go ­čî×

Arjantin’e has mate ├žay─▒

30 saatlik uzun bir yolculuktan sonra sonunda Buenos Aires’e vard─▒m. ─░lk g├╝nlerimde bilmedi─čim bir ┼čehirde oldu─čum i├žin garip hissederim diye d├╝┼č├╝n├╝yordum. Ama hi├ž de ├Âyle olmad─▒. Daha ├Ânce bir d├Ânem ─░spanya’da ya┼čad─▒m ve ispanyolca biliyorum. Belki bu y├╝zden kendimi yabanc─▒ hissetmedim, bilmiyorum.

Yolculu─čum boyunca Couchsurfing‘ten ev bulup kalmay─▒ planl─▒yorum. B├Âylece yerel gen├žlerle daha iyi bir ba─č kurabilece─čim ve k├╝lt├╝rlere daha kolay adapte olaca─č─▒m. Hostelde de kalmak bir se├ženek. Ama hostelde kald─▒─č─▒n─▒zda daha ├žok turist oluyorsunuz. Di─čer yabanc─▒larla tak─▒l─▒yorsunuz. Yerel insanlarla tan─▒┼čt─▒─č─▒n─▒zda ise o ┼čehri ya┼čayanlarla ke┼čfediyorsunuz. Bir├žok turistin gitmeyece─či bir bar─▒ ke┼čfedip ge├žmeyi d├╝┼č├╝nmeyece─činiz sokaklara ayak bas─▒yorsunuz. Couchsurfing’te kal─▒rken sabahlar─▒ turistik yerlere gidip ak┼čamlar─▒ yerel biriymi┼č gibi ya┼čayabiliyorsunuz.

Arjantinliler ger├žekten ├žok yard─▒mseverler. Daha ad─▒m─▒m─▒ ┼čehre atmadan u├žakta birka├ž arkada┼č edindim. Bir tanesi u├žaktan inince merkeze gidebilmem i├žin otob├╝s konusunda yard─▒mc─▒ oldu. Di─čeri ise 60 ya┼člar─▒nda ├žok tatl─▒ bir kad─▒nd─▒. Hatta iki saat sonra kendisiyle kahve i├žmek i├žin bulu┼čaca─č─▒m. Bu ├╝lkede mutsuz olmak zor gibi. Herkes sempatik ve g├╝lery├╝zl├╝.

Planlad─▒─č─▒m gibi buradaki ilk g├╝n├╝m ilkbahar─▒n da ilk g├╝n├╝yd├╝. Bu y├╝zden herkes sokaklarda bahar─▒n geli┼čini kutluyordu. Parklarda Arjantin ├žay─▒ mate i├žen bir s├╝r├╝ insan y─▒l─▒n ilk s─▒cak g├╝n├╝n├╝n keyfini ├ž─▒kar─▒yordu.

─░kinci g├╝n├╝mde, ev sahibim Juan ile ┼čehri ke┼čfe ├ž─▒kt─▒k. Olduk├ža yorucu bir g├╝nd├╝ diyebilirim. ├ç├╝nk├╝ tam tam─▒na 14 kilometre y├╝r├╝d├╝k Ôś║´ŞĆ Ama att─▒─č─▒m─▒z her ad─▒ma de─čdi. Umar─▒m siz de okurken benim kadar e─členirsiniz.

├ľncelikle Bosques de Palermo denilen b├╝y├╝k k├╝├ž├╝k bir├žok park─▒n oldu─ču b├Âlgeye gittik. Ayr─▒ ayr─▒ temalar─▒ olan parklar, g├╝ne┼čin tad─▒n─▒ ├ž─▒karan, mate i├žen ve tabii ki futbol oynayan Arjantinliler ile doluydu. Hafta i├ži gitti─čimiz i├žin ├žok fazla insan yoktu ama hafta sonu parklarda oturacak yer bulmak epey zormu┼č. Parklarda rengarenk ku┼člar ve bembeyaz ku─čular da ya┼č─▒yor. ─░├žinde sadece g├╝l olan Rosedal Park─▒n─▒ ge├žtik ve k├╝├ž├╝k ama sempatik bir m├╝ze olan Eduardo S├şvori Museum‘a u─črad─▒k.

Daha sonra Recoleta semtine u─črad─▒k. Buras─▒ daha turistik bir b├Âlge diyebilirim. Hem i├žinde Cementario de la Recoleta┬áad─▒nda kocaman bir mezarl─▒k bulunuyor hem de ayn─▒ b├Âlgede birka├ž m├╝ze yan yana. Cementaria de Recoleta, Arjantin’in zengin ve ├Ânemli insanlar─▒n─▒n mezarlar─▒n─▒n oldu─ču bir yer. Mezar demeye dilim varm─▒yor. ├ç├╝nk├╝ her bir mezarl─▒k adeta k├╝├ž├╝k bir ev gibi. Ayr─▒ca hepsi mozaikler veya b├╝y├╝k heykellerle bezeli. Baz─▒lar─▒n─▒n kap─▒s─▒ndan i├žerideki tabutlar─▒ da g├Ârebiliyorsunuz. ─░├žeri bakarken birisi hareket etse direkt kalpten gider insan ­čśü

Centro Cultural Recoleta’n─▒n ilgin├ž giri┼či

Buradan Centro Cultural Recoleta‘ya ge├žtik. Daha ├žok modern sanat eserlerinin bulundu─ču bir m├╝ze. Oradan da klasik sanatlar m├╝zesi olan Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes‘e u─črad─▒k.

Burada t├╝m m├╝zelere giri┼č ├╝cretsiz. Sadece Eduardo S├şvori Museum’a girerken 1ÔéČ gibi bir fiyat ├Âdedik. Ev sahibimin s├Âyledi─čine g├Âre buras─▒ da normalde ├╝cretsizmi┼č. Neden para ald─▒lar bilmiyorum. Neyse zaten 1ÔéČ da pek bir ┼čey de─čil. Bizdeki m├╝zelerin 20Ôé║ oldu─čunu d├╝┼č├╝n├╝rsek Ôś║´ŞĆ

14 kilometre y├╝r├╝d├╝kten sonra g├╝zel bir ak┼čam yeme─čini hak etti─čimiz i├žin Bellagamba┬áad─▒nda bir restorana gittik. Kald─▒─č─▒m yer Palermo’ya yak─▒n olan ve inan─▒lmaz g├╝zel Arjantin po─ča├žalar─▒ ve tuzlu turtalar─▒ yapan g├╝zel bir yer Bellagamba. Yemekleri de olduk├ža ucuz. Yolunuz Palermo’ya d├╝┼čerse mutlaka u─čraman─▒z─▒ ├Âneririm.

Ayr─▒ca ┼čehirde 20 – 25 Eyl├╝l tarihleri aras─▒nda Ciudad Emergente ad─▒nda bir festival var. Festivalin aktiviteleri ┼čehrin ├že┼čitli yerlerinde yap─▒l─▒yor ve mizah, m├╝zik gibi bir├žok kategorisi bulunmakta. Evet, t├╝m aktiviteler yine ├╝cretsiz. Hen├╝z gidemedim ama hafta sonu konserlerden birine gitmeye ├žal─▒┼čaca─č─▒m.

Bug├╝n bu evde son g├╝n├╝m. Ba┼čka bir eve ge├žiyorum. Bir hafta sonra da Montevideo’ya yelken a├žaca─č─▒m. Yani ben yelken a├žmayaca─č─▒m ama gemiyle gidece─čim ­čśü Gitmeden ├Ânce ┼čehirde bir tango g├Âsterisi izlemezsem ay─▒p olur, de─čil mi? ­čî×
