Dear Veronica,I am so happy that you got away to Istanbul. Last spring, about this time, there was a lale/tulip festival in the city. It was at times breathtakingly beautiful. I hope you will experience something similar in a city that is constantly there to be rediscovered.Yours,Vilhelm
No, Taras, it's a turtledove :)Vilhelm, we were in Istanbul for the tulips last year - loved it. Right now, however, Gülhane is getting its post-winter clean-up, so it's not too good for walking, unfortunately. But the rest of the city is as great as ever.
Oh, and the storks are already here - the storks that live in Gülhane - leylekler, лелеки...
