The Hidrellez Festival is celebrated throught out Turkey once a year and it’s believed that all wishes made that day would come true.
On that night, people write down their wishes, or even better, draw them on paper and hang to rose branches so that they’ll come true. Or, you can draw them on sand with a stick and even jump over fires wishing things.
For the past few years, it has become a festival in Ahirkapi, a seaside residence in Istanbul where almost the entire city comes together to celebrate this night with fires, music, dancing, and food. The festivals are so colorful, everyone dressed like gypsies, there is drums and singing everywhere. Also, you can see the ribbons tied to ropes, representing wishes.
So what did I wish for this year? Of course to own my very own lomo store :)) I hope it’s gonna come true :))

Pripyat is a modern day Atlantis. The inhabitants of the Soviet town had to run from the nuclear disaster and therefore it has been preserved more or less in the state of 1986. I made my way up to the North of Ukraine thirty years after the catastrophe. This is the second part of this adventure.
