Photographic diary: Strolling through Istanbul with Mourid Barghouti

ON the occasion of the recent publication of my translation of Mahmoud Darwish’s, Yawmiyyāt al-ḥuzn al-ʿādī, I post here some photos of another great Palestinian poet, Mourid Barghouti.

He was my invited guest and one of the most distinguished poets who participated in the 2nd International Poetry Festival of Istanbul http://2009.istanbulsiirfestivali.org/. Thank you for coming Mourid.
