Photographer's Note

Old Ottoman house in the town of Sivrihisar (Eskisehir province) in Central Turkey. The bad condition is unfortunately too typical for old buildings in Turkey. In particular houses are in a bad state, because house owners have no interest or no money for repairments, or find the rules for restauration of monuments too complicated.

Sivrihisar is rarely visited by tourists, although it is an interesting and charming small town, full of old buildings, and is on the main road from Eskisehir to Ankara.
Sivrihisar is - by the way - the birth place of Nasrettin Hoca, the famous story teller.
