The visitor…. Near Leicester Square, London

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!  



I quite like the different textures and shades of black you can see here, too:)

  1. turkey especially istanbul is the new destination among the traveling crowd. used to be berlin just recently but the new money and increasing number of the young educated oil-rich from this part of the world have made it an exciting destination.

    turkey is one of a kind – it's uniquely situated at a cross roads between europe and the middle east. the best of both worlds culturally and economically speaking.

    great shot by the way.

    all my turkish girlfriends are very stylish, pretty and groomed.
    they have unique way to dress up, like a mix of clothes and history, heritage.
    they are strong girls but feminine
