When you think of Turkey what do you think? Istanbul? Or maybe holidays on the Mediterranean coast?
Kocaeli Daily Photo brings photos and stories from Kocaeli, a part of Turkey which we usually don’t hear much about. From the site:
Province of northwest Turkey, bordered to the north by the Black Sea, to the southwest by the Sea of Marmara and to the west by Istanbul. Area 3986 sq.km; Population about 1.4 million. Izmit is the central city of Kocaeli.
As you’ll see from the photos, there is plenty of life there: fishing and industry as well as people cooling off in the waterfall and enjoying the summer in other ways. Expanded roads shows another side of Turkey’s growth story.
