This weekend we were in Istanbul for the first time in nearly a year. It was an eye-opening window onto a city that has lost hope, direction and energy. I have never sensed such melancholy before.
There were a number of interactions and observations that left me somewhat speechless. The first one was the prices. Turkey might be putting out statistics which suggest 10-12% inflation but that is unbelievably optimistic.
Everything was between 50% and 100% more expensive than last year. From a haircut to a cola, from a “kumru” to dry cleaning, prices had shot up phenomenally. The only thing that has stayed the same seems to be taxi fares.
