Before our new members in Istanbul introduce themselves I must share a personal experience in connection with my quality control visit. I love Istanbul and have always garnered very pleasant memories on many visits there. I drove into Istanbul in early February 2020 to visit our prospective members. On that day several unusual events took place in the area: a commercial jet airliner crash and a severe snow/rain storm. Due to many ambulances rushing to the airport and the inclement weather having an additional effect on traffic it took several hours to get to my destination including getting lost multiple times. Istanbul traffic is bad in the best of conditions but the two unusual events made it impossible. I thought that the visit would be very unpleasant. However, the next day I met with Mustafa, Yusuf and their colleagues. Their hospitality, warmth, conversation (both professional and personal), choice of lunch restaurants and their offers of assistance really touched me. They are and will be a great addition and complement to IGAL. A wonderful group of people. Last, and certainly not least, my lifelong pleasant memories of Istanbul have been fully restored.
