I recently returned from 3 terrific weeks in Turkey, which included an unexpected invitation to a “Forum Fashion Week” reception. Turkey?, Fashion Week ? Yes Turkey has one, and it’s not all Burkas. Browse the Istanbul Modern calendar, or read about the current Joan Miro exhibit and other Istanbul events. Turkey is my favorite destination. The people are friendly, and the history is so vast and layered. It is the center of the world and the history is everywhere. I hope that the current challenges are met and don’t spoil this wonderful country.
