Twice I have spent hours writing an open letter to Julia, Ville, Ruskin, Matti, Anton and Neve to express my heartfelt gratitude and thanks for their wonderful hospitality, love and friendship which allowed Teeny and I to visit them in Istanbul recently. Unfortunately Blogger has decided that saving said blog post was not on its list of priorities and now, as hard as I try, the words will just not come as they did before and I know myself well enough to know that if I do not publish a post about our trip soon it will stay in my drafts folder forever. So here is my very condensed down, but equally as thankful post on our wonderfully enriching trip to Istanbul.
Julia, Ville, Ruskin, Matti, Anton and Neve please know that my lack of words in this post does not reflect a lack of appreciation, rather the opposite; I feel that today whatever I write could never reflect my gratitude or admiration for you all.
