Michel Ocelot, France: author of animated films

Nihan Vural was the absolute answer for my little time in Byzantium-Constantinople-Istanbul. In her company I could take without worry metro, bus and tram with the istanbullites, and walk and walk and walk, and get to see the grandiose landmarks, breathtaking views, and the modest secrets only an inhabitant can know and which mean so much. And I enjoyed her conversation, her knowledge of ancient history and of immediate actuality, her thinking, her love for this universe-city, a contagious love… I shall come again. In the meantime I take advantage of her great site to keep in touch with the life of her fantastic city.
