Turkey is Typing….

It has been a busy week, news wise in Turkey, the continuing dialouge about the Islamic fundamentalist who killed a Turkish judge (reported on GV last week) and the fire at the Istanbul airport has been foremost in the news….but the bloggers seemed to be fairly quiet this week (..that or I am becoming way too dependent on my RSS feeds and need to reach outside of my box). So I thought that I would ramble a bit and tell you about some of my favorite Turkish blogs out there.

ISBN 976-08-06 is written in Turkish, but with the high volume of art videos and project links that this site puts up, language should never be an issue. Along the same vein as ISBN, visit Buzdolap (refridgerator in Turkish), again this site is in Turkish but the nature of the project makes itself fairly clear. One of my favorite food blogs is Yogurt Land, which has posts in English and Turkish. Other good food blog sites are Zen in the Kitchen and Portakal Agaci.

Of course if you want the master list of Turkish blogs, the place to go is Blog Kardesligi, recently featured/interviewed by Turk CNN as shown on Metroblogging Istanbul. Till next week…
