In the mornings, the two things I can’t do without are my morning coffee and Sinanation. For those of you who follow Sinan’s blog, you should be well aware of his Wanted series. For those of you who don’t follow his blog yet, you should do it now.
A refined gourmet, an artist, a wannabe DJ, a top chef, a unique travel companion, a person who knows best how to take pleasure from life, a serious guy in his tux, a little kid in his orange v-necks… a best friend.
