The protests in Izmir have seemed to have ceased for the most part; restoring the city to its much quieter self. Recently, we went down to Alsancak to sign up for my Turkish lessons (!) and afterwards we wandered down a main walkway leading to the sea, where the buildings and sidewalks were covered with the colorful messages of protesters; most of them cheeky, but all of them having a somber undertone.
