Nazli just stood out to me in a sea of tourists and hurried/harried Londoners (her hair colour! her neutral/natural make-up!). The fact that she was holding a map of course gave her away as a visitor. It turned out that she is from Turkey. Now, I have made a few friends who are Turkish, or of Turkish descent, who have been lobbying me to visit the country, especially Istanbul. Garance has done a series of posts around a recent trip there, and everything that I have read and seen in pictures is inspiring. It may finally be time to hop on a plane and see this magical place for myself!
