Faces of Turkey


I am putting some of my favorite pictures here.

Walking on the side streets of Istiklal Cad. on a Saturday afternoon, you will see many people playing backgammon. This day in addition to the many young people, there were these gentlemen enjoying their game.


One evening my friend, Lucita and I were enjoying Ortakoy, along the Bosporus on a Saturday evening and started a conversation with some women. It turned out that they were tourists from Saudia Arabia. They were enjoying their visit to Istanbul and doing a lot of shopping. One of them had gone to graduate school in Virginia and her daughter had been born in America.
