13 days have passed since the earthquake.

Saturday was like a spring day in Diyarbakir. Instead of the cold streets left by the earthquake, there was warm air in the city. The streets were full with people who had big earthquake nearly two ago.

I walked from one neighborhood to another to see the tents set up for the earthquake victims in Kosuyolu Park.

The people of Diyarbakir are rushing to works, shops are open and full, and young people are sitting in cafes like 13 days ago.

On the one hand, people are now returning to their routine. But on the other hand, there were also homeless people. They still feel the affect of the earthquake that is way it will be difficult to return routine.

About 100 tents have been pitched in Kosuyolu park. There was a crowd there. Because of the sunny weather, people came out of their cold tents.

There were roads on both sides of the park. The park was only surrounded by iron railing.

There was a big confusion in the park. The police are standing outside the park.

While some children were having fun with toys, others were singing and dancing in front of the tents set up for them.

In addition to the tents set up by Afad, there were also tents set up by earthquake victims with locally.

A woman came next to me with her baby and said:

Enter my number, and help us. The tents are very cold, our houses are damaged, and we cannot go.

Besides people who live in tents, some people were moving out of their damaged houses.

From the ruins to another neighborhood, a village, or a city…
