Letter from Sisyphus of Prinkipo island

Dear Colleagues,
It is now Autumn season in Prinkipo island, autumn leaves are everywhere, moving to mainland city by summertime locals are getting increased, houses are getting dark at night. We have almost complete silence at night in Prinkipo island, dogs seagulls crows are also silent, only warm sea breeze. It is now rain season, we shall have many days of heavy rain which will clean roads, horseshit will be disposed soon, we shall have clean fresh smell of flowers and green grass soon.
Construction/ rehab/ renovation ban is lifted. We hear daytime repair / renovation noises everywhere in Prinkipo island, roofs are renewed, old mansions are renovated, complete silence at night,
Yesterday was the Semiannual Holy Climbing day for AyaYorgi peak in Prinkipo island Buyukada Istanbul, more than mainland and overseas visitors were in the island on the Torture slope to AyaYorgi Monastery
We are advised that New legislation is argued for Long-term leasing of old mansions in Prinkipo by rich Arab families, application will renew the island and enable old houses renovated during low season.
On the other hand, local Real Estate constructors are advising impose long-term (49 yrs) real estate rental system for countries with no reciprocity practice (Saudi/ Russia/ Gulf countries) in real estate as in Prinkipo island Buyukada.
Local Real-estate Constructors are also advising full-sale real estate to countries with no reciprocity in legislation, Full Sale of old mansions in Prinkipo to rich Arab families may renew the island.
Policy may enable old houses renovated during low season however  it will change demographics drastically with no return for sure, newcomers do not know meaning of secularism in democracy/ and reciprocity principle in their international affairs. Certainly newcomers both Saudis/ Arabs/Russians will profit from city gentrification  in the long run.. Too controversial?, I feel not, what do you think?? Best regards
Sisyphus of Prinkipo
