The following is an MTV Cribs special presentation.
Come on in MTV Cribs, let me show you around the Topkapı Palace, which is a large palace in Istanbul/Turkey, that was the primary residence of the Ottoman sultans for approximately 400 years. And now it’s mine for a couple of seconds. Fuck what you heard it’s mine, it’s mine. So let me show you around.
As well as a royal residence, the palace was a setting for state occasions and royal entertainments. It is now a major tourist attraction and contains important holy relics of the Muslim world, including Muhammed’s cloak and sword. The palace complex consists of 4 main courtyards and a couple of smaller buildings. And the smaller buildings are as big as the hood I used to live in. Back in time the palace was home to approximately 4,000 people. And now I live here alone, because I upgraded myself to this:
When I got to the plane to Istanbul I was determined to not use my Iphone. No pictures, no calls, no internet. Nothing. Just me and the city for one whole week. But as soon as I drove up with the cap into this metropolis I couldn’t resist. Like I captured the pics in my brain, but I needed people to see what Istanbul is about.
So I took my ass to Hagia Sophia, a former Greek Orthodox church, which later became an imperial mosque and now is a museum in Istanbul/Turkey. This place is almost 1500 years old. Like imagine how many people where walking in and out of this monument. Even the thought is just surreal. So at the end of the day this The Shit I’m Wearing thing came out without me having the intention to do so, because vacations are made to relax or nah?!
But I think the though of “When Occident Meets Orient” is captured perfectly (no bragging!).
I have been taking all this weather shit and I couldn’t handle it no more: one hour of sunshine, five hours of rain. And repeat. So I had enough, packed my bag, bought a ticket and flew with a couple of friends to Pula/Croatia. And this was the best decision ever. Like ever!
We were alone on the beach, which was a secret little bay with water having 50 shades of blue. The sun kissed my body and left a little bit of lipstick if you know what I mean. The architecture of this city is beyond amazing, took me back to the Roman Empire with its own flair. And I was drunk as fuck. A great way to spend your weekend!
I swear if you have time and need vacation, then Croatia is the place to be. And I am saying this from an objective point of view.
