An encounter with Darth Vader!

Yes, it is my destiny 🙂

Finally, meeting Mr. Dave Prowse (aka Darth Vader in the original Star Wars trilogy) at D&R Astoria, Istanbul.

Mr. Dave Prowse and his humble servant!
Mr. Dave Prowse and his humble servant!

Due to release of official Darth Vader comic series, he is invited to Istanbul by a local publisher. It was announced a few months ago, and I was waiting for him since then…Certainly worth the wait! Such a kind man, and a true English gentleman with a big warm heart. He is an authentic Jedi knight, actually!  –  “At your service, my Lord!”

Heaven on Earth

Atatürk Arboretum, a living heritage tree museum, is located south east of the Belgrade Forest in Istanbul. Covering 345 hectares area, it is Heaven on Earth displaying not only its local flora, but also many elected trees and plants brought from all over the world. Resembling a laboratory, the arboretum serves as a source to many researches.

Today, we had the privilege of visiting Atatürk Arboretum! Special thanks and greetings to Ico & Ümit for making this special day a wonderful one 🙂

Lo and behold! Here comes the knights of Sherwood...
