Istanbul with Marino Auffant ’10

After the Istanbul Conference, I haven’t stopped wishing to go back to Turkey–something that I’m sure will happen sooner rather than later. I loved everything from Hagia Sophia and the Grand Bazar to rakı and the awesome fasıl night, but most of all, the awesome delegates from Boğaziçi University. I think the best times of the conference were simply those in which we hung out and socialized while exploring that most magical city in the world, walking by the bosphorus and asking for lokum from every single street vendor on istiklal caddesi before grabbing wet hamburgers after midnight. I have to say, this whole trip was simply unforgettable!
