Galata is remarkably worldly-wise for the city.

It is the one that separates guest from host, right from wrong and sake from waiter.

Dilemma of victims,

Breath of timid strays,

It sees tearful flagstones, reveals them.

It makes inspiration from old-Istanbul last for all living creatures.

That glorious Galata,

It stands the test of time thanks to stonemason!
