arts + culture,

I'll be meeting my 25 yr old daughter in Istanbul, where we will stay a few days with friends of the family. Our travel will take us to Kalkan and exploration of historical sites and rooftop restaurants. We hope to take a day trip to a Greek island off the coast during this leg of the trip. Then, back to Istanbul to buy rugs,hand painted tiles and spices before flying home and leaving my daughter to continue her summer travels. Can't wait!
