As I am sipping on some coffee in this beautiful historical villa, surrounded by trees, I talk with the owners of the place. Princess Island is where they spend their summers. In this silent part of the island, the only noise is surely their laughs.
This is probably the most interesting plant I have ever seen. All phases of the leaves are very different from one other and in its blossomed state it reminds me of a beautiful fabric with prints.
What I like the most about this house is the faces with different expressions watching you everywhere. Sometimes it is Fornasetti's Lina Cavalieri, sometimes it is babies from Kezban Arca Batibeki painting...

 Painting purchased from Far East hangs on the wall temporarily; it stands in for a work by Seda Hepsev, which is being displayed at Istanbul Museum of Modern Art.
