The German language has a beautiful way of saying East and West: Morgenland und Abendland – in English that would translate into Morning Land and Evening Land.

I remember cruising in a small ship on the Bospherus in Istanbul one evening in December of 1996. One bank of the river is Morgenland and the other is Abendland.

Istanbul will be one of the 2010 European Capitals of Culture.
