Wayne and Raewyn's Visit to Istanbul

We had a wonderful few days catching up with our friends, Wayne and Raewyn from New Zealand. They used to teach in Turkey, that is how we first met them. We have seen them since they left Turkey as we travelled around the coast of South Island, New Zealand with them, when we took our geriatric gap year, and stayed in their home.

While they were here, we caught up with all their news and they got to visit some of the Turksh teachers they worked with when they lived here. We all agreed on two things: we wish that Avis and Brian had been here to share it with us, and we must meet again in the not-too-far distant future.
