Merhaba. I'm an InterNations activity consul for NYC. My partner and I will be doing a short tour of Turkey from 22 Nov Protected content and spending our last few days in Istanbul, likely from 28 Nov until departure. The IN group here is very active and we hope to join at least one IN event while in Istanbul. Meanwhile, if there are other expats or locals who would like to meet up for coffee, lunch or dinner/drinks, we'd be happy to see you. We will be doing the usual touristy things, but everyone has to eat at some point. :) Please respond in this Forum or send me a private message. And of course, if you find yourself in NYC in future, I would be glad to help or meet you during your trip. Teşekkür ederim!
