Turkish Community in London

There are over 350,000 people in London’s Turkish Community. Ninety percent of the Turks in the United Kingdom live in the capital.

People started to come to the UK from Cyprus for work after the Second World War, and then again when Turkish Cypriots were forced to leave their homes during the Cyprus conflict in the late 1960s. Turks then began to come from Turkey for work and a better living.

There are large Turkish speaking neighbourhoods in London, where there are Turkish flags in shops, supermarkets, restaurants, and Kebab shops. You will also hear people speaking Turkish on the street, and smell Turkish food.

The best known Turkish areas are in north east London; Hackney, Tottenham, Enfield, Edmonton and Wood Green. There are also some Turkish areas in south London; Croydon, Peckham, also Hammersmith and Chelsea in the west.

There are also several Turkish mosques in London. The most famous are the Aziziye mosque, the Validesultan mosque in Stoke Newington and the Suleymaniye mosque in Hackney. There are summer festivals from every mosque to raise money for the mosques.

My Day at Westminster Bridge

This weekend I went to the London Bridge with my mother and saw three bridges.

My favourite part was the boat and the water.

We went to the movies.  We saw Mega Mind.

In the film there was Metro Man who was a good guy and lived in Metro City.

I enjoyed my weekend very much.

Next weekend I want to go to the London Eye.

 

Michael Jackson’s estate has made more than $1bn (£677m) since his sudden death in 2009.

 US magazine Billboard reported that Michael’s  album sales have generated a total of $383m (£259m) whilst the revenue from his film “This Is It “has made a reported $400m (£271m).

Sony Music Entertainment has made a deal to release another 10 albums of the late singer’s music over the next seven years, including one of never before heard material.

It was just one year ago that Michael was found dead.  with a shroud of mystery around his death

The boom in record and film sales shows that people are still grieving for the King of Pop all over the world.   

Most of the world’s capitals have been paying tribute to him.

In London, people moon walked all over Trafalgar Square. In Puri in India, people made a sand sculpture. Hollywood people laid tributes on the star’s name.  

It looks like just like Elvis, Michael will make more money dead than alive
