Hitch-hiking in Turkey is very pleasant.
Taylan was my last host in Istanbul and will help me later while i’m on the road about some turkish translations things to help me to communicate with turkish peole. I hitch-hiked to go out from Istanbul and several drivers picked me up and drove me to the south of Istanbul where i took a ferry. After 45 minutes of boat, I went out of the ferry and all the cars as well. I didn’t hitch-hiked so i found myself alone on the road when Taylan picked me up. Taylan spoke a perfect french as he studied it at school. Very impressive. He spoke without grammatical mistakes, all his sentences were perfect and he almost didn’t has any accent. Taylan told me he went out of the ferry a bit late as he has had a small accident with an other driver on the ferry. He told me that the name Taylan was quite rare and that it was a nice coincidence that my friend in Istanbul was also named Taylan.
After discussing while the journey, Taylan left me near Bursa. I walked and police stopped. They checked my passport and bags and brought me two kilometers further as there was a security area for the prime minister and they wanted nobody to walk on this zone.
I met my friend Isa who hosted me one night.
