The kindness I have experienced in my travels throughout the Middle East and Turkey continues to be the highlight of my buying trips. The hospitality offered by the people and families I meet is a work of art. I am made to feel welcome in every way, a part of the family, the son returning from far away. The matriarch takes care of every last detail with grace and a smile. To experience this legendary hospitality is humbling in so many ways. It is woven into the fabric of the society. It is a hot cup of tea for the tired traveller.
Here are a few of the kind people who make my trips to Turkey so unforgettable.
