In the Land of the Lodos Eaters

Harem, Lodos :: 30 October 2012
From more or less the same spot as a year ago, only looking in a different direction. The lodos are blowing here, who Osman Nuri tells us blow from the cenubu garbi, the southwest; the lodos are blowing here, and this morning my aunt and uncle described to me one kind of havoc the winds visit upon the city: They slip down chimneys built in fear of the biting poyraz from the north, snuff out pilot lights, lead to news stories the next day about a family –– poisoned by unburnt gas –– who died in their sleep.

But from the shore? A bright breeze, a sea like hammered tin.
