Izmir is not only a “millions people” city. She is also a large port with some thousands of years of history shared with people of the Seven Seas. This legacy tends to be forgotten by city planners. Fishermen once living close to the city center are now repelled to the last suburbs. Cormorants drying their wings watch the still hand-made carvel-built double-ended “kayik” crossing in front of modern buildings. Good to have still them here bringing daily fresh fish back to our markets.
