Karen Van Drie, our March speaker and Istanbul IN member, is a teacher, librarian and 21st century information expert.

Karen’s blog, “Empty Nest Expat” has been lauded as one of the best expat blogs published. Her twitter stream at @emptynestexpat was featured in America’s largest newspaper, “The Wall Street Journal.” The London Telegraph also chose to feature her @emptynestexpat twitter stream in a list of expert expats – she was the only Yank featured!

But in order to use this awesome space and awesome view, the restaurant has asked for a 15 TL minimum for each person. There will be bottomless tea and coffee and cookies for 15 TL, or a 15 TL minimum on food, drinks (beer and wine available), etc.
