My Favorite Room

Neslihan Karabulut from Turkey

Neslihan's room
Drawing by Neslihan Karabulut
That room had a big window through which we could see the sea, very close, and it had a big balcony in front.


 

I still remember the room in which I spent perhaps the most beautiful days of my life. It was in an apartment which was the tallest one in our street. It had a big window through which we could see the sea, very close by, and it had a big balcony in front.

I talked long hours with my closest friend there till late at night, and in that room my brothers and I played together. We had a lot of fun there during our childhood. There was a small sofa which was my lovely grandmother's favorite.

We often watched TV there. When I was 9 years old, the TV program Dallas was very popular. While I was watching that film I said to my family that one day I would live there. I had a feeling about that in my heart. Perhaps it was an instinct. My family told me not to talk so silly, but those words came true.

Writing about that room takes me back to those beautiful days. When I close my eyes I still remember those days; I hear the voices of all the members of my family when we were all together in that room.
