Photographer's Note

Han Cafe at Gelibolu, Canakkale
Gelibolu'da Han Kiraathanesi


Bedava yasiyoruz, bedava;
Hava bedava, bulut bedava;
Dere tepe bedava;
Yagmur camur bedava;
Otomobillerin disi,
Sinamalarin kapisi,
Camekanlar bedava;
Peynir ekmek degil ama
Aci su bedava;
Kelle fiyatina hurriyet,
Esirlik bedava;
Bedava yasiyoruz, bedava.

Orhan Veli

English translation;


We are living for free;
The air is for free, the clouds are for free.
Hills and dales are for free;
Rain and mud are for free;
The outside of cars,
The entrance to movie houses,
The store windows are for free;
It is not the same as bread and cheese,
But salt water is for free;
Freedom will cost you your life,
But slavery is for free;
We are living for free,
For free.

Orhan Veli
