Serdar and Tachelle ©2010 by Trici Venola. Old City, Istanbul. What a romance: he was a waiter at a posh exclusive boutique hotel, and she stayed there with a Canadian tour group. They fell in love. Two years or so later, here's their commemorative wedding portrait. Now they're living in Canada, and he's doing real well at work in a restaurant catering to exactly the same kind of people as the Istanbul hotel. People in Turkey work longer hours and for less at these jobs than in Canada, so he's a well-employed and happy guy.
