autumn in december

hello after a while. Its hard to believe that it has been nearly two months here. The weather is still like autumn . I cant guess how it is in my country . Probably freezing . The time is passing quite fast in japan and I am quite busy with my project and my life in japan so pls excuse me , i havent written for so long.

I have a phone number, a bank account and im nearly feeling like I am a part of the country. but pls dont wait too much I still cant speak japanese so fluquently.

I have reached some turkish people living in Japan . Most of them engineers and it was interesting to hear that they have been in Japan for long time . They have been inside the culture for a really long time and had many experiences and it was nice to hear some of these from them . Tamas and I went to clubbing and met turkish people there . It was nice to be talking turkish after long time . I noticed that i was the only turkish guy who was unable to speak japanese :(But the interesting point is they werent speaking so good turkish .

We have been to a baseball match with Drecom people . It was my first time to play baseball . I cant say i played well but thanks to company people they let me play. Most of the people are playing baseball quite well , much better than me . I have been makng some photos of them while playing and they were really concentrated on playing . Also i made photos from different places of tokyo . I dont have much time in week days so i havent been out of tokyo yet . Im hoping to go to Kyoto in christmas holiday and take nice photos. After 2 months here I think japanese people put a lot of concentration both on their work and fun. I think they like doing everything carefully. I belive this attitude comes from culture and im happy that day by day im gaining these attitudes and learning more from them .

These days Im more concentrated on our project. Tamas and I are working in a good harmony . People in the company are helping us too. We can ask questions freely. Im a bit excited because next week we will be making a project about our project. I hope everybody will understand it vecause I hope hope that everybody will understand what we re working on and it will be nice to hear some questions from all employees of the company. Basicly we are working on a social network based on web 2.0 idea . We hope to interact people from different countries meet and help each other . Users will be able to share and read the information of the site at the time . If you re interested in going abroad you will be able to find what you look for in the site and as its based on web 2.0 . Recently we have finished the communities and implemented Gmaps on the site. People will be able to create free communities and see their locations on the maps. Later on we are planning to put some dynamic web games to make the site more attractive. It can be mainly based on Gmaps or other ajax tools . I beleive that hee site will grow larger by the users posts and shares. I will be talking about it in a more detailed way next week.
thats all from me now

Wish you the best

After a little break ..

Well after a few days break its nice to say hi once again . Days in japan are passing quite fast and i still cant believe i passed nearly a month here. i think im having kinda f time problems. I rediscovered the relativity theory of einstein here. Time passes so fast. Maybe its because of the work life we have or the athmospere surrounding us . In my country we see sunlight till 8 pm but here it goes down about 4-5pm. Oh i really missed the sun . Oke oke i wont make too much critics:) A good thing is that in turkey its snowing and people are wearing really thick clothes and i can still wear a t-shirt here. Ihih its amazing. I ll be celebrating christmas with no snow for the first time. That really excites me. Also sometimes on msn i appear with only a shirt or such staff and my friends from turkey really jealous me. They are having a really bad winter there. I wish them really good luck . Im planning to go to a swimming pool next week
we have started a japanes course at last . Its interesting to be with other foreigners and learn japanese . Sometimes there are funny occations like yesterday. Sensei asked tamas "anata no sensei wa dare desu ka " and tamas's answer was "watashi wa tamas ". Well the teacher was asking who his teacher was and he said his name instead. It was quite interesting answer and the other thing is you should listen him while he is studyin japanese . He has great potential . I think he might enter medicine in a japanese university next year :) About me well i think turkish and japanese grammar are quite same so i feel like i re learn my own language and its quite fun. The only thing is we dont have sounds ike mya myu myo . So its a bit strange for me to say these sounds . But anyway i like your language.
In week times i dont have much time so i couldnt send any photos this time . last weekend we were in akehabara. We just looked for a few electronic staff and i learnt that Akehabara was the true address of such kind of staff. Well the prices were quite expensive. To be honest if i buy something i ll have to pass the next month in the streets . There wont be any money left to pay the rent. Japan is really expensive . There were also some indian traders in Akehabara too. Well they werent as japanese people. They dont help u much and i didnt like their trading attitude. We have been to several shops . Japanese people always helped us and tried to be as kind as possible but i cant say the same think for the duty free shops where foreigners work.. It was a bit sad . I also saw some turkish kebab restaurants but pals let me honestly tell u Its not real KEBAB. Its some kind of doner and doesnt seem to be so sweet its just too chilly. Kebap is bigger and much more ooshi . I think we should invite a few of my friends and have a real kebab party then you will understand me. Here most restaurants makes things quite easy they just sell doner instead of kebap. And its not something like true kebap . And the funny thing is i saw an african guy working in a kebap restaurant . Maybe its routine for u but for me it was quite funny . In turkey generally turkish people are allowed to work in kebap restaurants because its a part of culture. it was quite funny to hear someone calling me in english what kind of kebap i wanted . We generally eat kebap with ayran (a drink made of milk) not with cola.)Just keep it in mind in pls . If u come to my country one day you will see the difference about kebap ..
Oke its enough about kebap i think because im getting hungry.). In lunch times here we generally taste japanese food and its nice to say that im used to hashi . I think i ll buy a collection of hashis and return them to my country because day by day i forget how to use fork. And its lunch time now so have a good lunch pals . Itada kimasu.

Gates of Olympus

Well the question is how u can create a beutiful sunday and the answer is just ahead in the tokyo center. Today tamas and i went to city center . I wasnt expecting to see such color of green in a city center but i felt like i was inside kinda paradise. The little child inside me was awakened once again so i took about 100 photos )Well there was nobody to stop me so one photo followed another . This is one of the photos i took today. I felt like i was front of the gates of Olympos . The great mountain of Greek Mytology Gods. I hear u say its not in asia. Lets say it was in my dreams so just tell me pls who can judge my dreams ...)uu .MM no i dont think so .Oke im just joking think what ever u want . Its ur imagination . The thing i just wanna say is that green , nature ,piece they are all in one word . Unioned combined with a great harmony and that words is just in Tokyo center gardens.And like Morpheous says 'nobody can be told what the matrix is . You have to see it for yourself'. I just say u have to see this beauty of nature for yourself.. see ya all .

The cello man of tokyo

There he is. If u just concentrate you will hear a great harmony instead of all the noices of the city. This sound probably comes from the metro of Shibuya. Urume san has been there approximatly about 6 years . He just writes his rhyms his poetry with music which is really best for your ears.
I just asked him if or not it was hard to live like this in Tokyo . His answer was pretty smiling . The importan thing is not living its just enjoying the art u do. And i think that was the true description of art. no thinking of past or the future just enjoying the moment just enjoying what u do .Smelling the life smelling the art u live. I think thats what he does.
I bow front of u with great respect Urume san...

A firt step to the country of beautiful smiles.

So there we go... This is supposed to be my first writing and im not really prepared . Its my second week in tokyo and im still excited like the first day . New things always keeps u excited in your life time and Japan is full of interesting and nice things for me. Firsty its really comfortable to be able to walk the streets like ure not a foreigner. Maybe its because everybody has their own world in their being . I mean nobody is really interested in examining or searching for new faces in the streets . Except me. As im deeply interested in art and photography i like human faces and i strongyle belive a human face carries thousands of stories inside. and i like solving this beautiful puzzle . the good thing is japanese people like being photographed . I dont know at least they smile . This smile may lead to any meaning but lets just thing they like it. I think thats the best meaning for me :)

I want to make a few comments about japanese food too. So the famous invention what was it . Oh Hashii right..Learning how to use it took one week and i was feeling like a baby learning how to walk. I always liked learning new things in my life and to become like a baby at the age of 22 was quite exciting.) To be honest after tasting the food eventhough it was delicous my stomach had some disasters. Not a real disaster lets just say some pain. But dont worry im alright now and i believe i can each japanese food much better then you all people :P Well lets just say i can eat and no stomach problem and i think its a good development for my digestion system . And soon i ll be tasting more various food here , i really promise for that. For the starting day i would appriciate a guide who would help me :)

Here im passing most of my time in the company . Lets just say our job sweet job , Drecom. People are so young here most of them under 30 and its a nice feeling to be inside a young office with young souls. The interesting thing is when i met the people here they thought i was 24-25 or something . Oh come on im not such old) If u want to see a 24 year old one Tamas is sitting next to me :) One things is for sure japanese people like working really much and i really respect that . You cant find this discipline and good working conditions in an other country. And people here like doing self introduction . Ciko shokai right?thats the word well i did it more than a few times. It was half japanese half english . I really wish i could do all of my self introduction on Japanese but im not good in the language and i dont have a japanese teacher yet . Studying on my own and hope to improve it anyway. But in the yakutori party they taught me some japanese , i think it was a bit nasty japanese so i just forgot those words . It was nice to have a good party with all the employees in the company . And at last i had the taste of japanese beer . It was fine. my stomach had a party after the event . And i discovered one thing. Japanese people are real karaoke stars. They have good voices . i think you could be quite famous in my country so listen my advice come to my country to be a karaoke star. In my country you cant find karaoke easily so i think a new path of music might be created in my country. And if nobody does i ll be the first karaoke star )

And the beautiful japanese streets . there are people who makes music . Soon i ll introduce you with the cello man of the metro. Urume san. You will see his photo soon so dont worry. Its nice to see music in the strees. Lyrics whispered to your ears under the noises of the big city Tokyo. Its just like somebody fondling your hair when u hear that soft music . I really liked that. I just stayed in the metro and listened the cello man for an hour.. i think music is a common language that every soul can understand ,even me.

Oke it was just a start i dont wanna bore you with my first letters so thats all for a start.

Soon i will be sharing my photos taken in tokyo here. i hope you will enjoy them.
