Meeting someone like Zeynep is what makes traveling extra special. Zeynep keeps a jewelry shop in the Sultanahmet area of Istanbul. I just returned last night from a fun short holiday and first time visit to this mysterious city... the trip did not allow enough time to see all the wonders but there was enough time to become friends with Zeynep whose sister lives in Belgium's Charleroi and cousin in Antwerp. She is therefore saving up and planning her very first trip to Belgium next year.
