Dear Bülent Bey,
Thank you very much for your elaborate critique. I did learn a lot from your previous shots there. With your permission, I would love to use some parts of your note in the introduction of the current image.
I've been in Houston, Chicago, and in DC. It was partly business and partly to see old friends from the MBA Program. It coincided with the Cherry Blossom Festival. I also wished to visit you, but then I decided it would be very difficult considering the multi-phased program. Apparently, that would not be possible any way. How was your trip?
