Selam, my friends!  May peace be upon you all in this glorious month of Ramadan.  I hope you are doing well during these long summer days.  These summer days and months are rolling along quite quickly and we have already completed the 13 day of this Mubarek month.  This past weekend, my dear friend Nalan, welcome us to her beautiful home and prepared us a feast that completely memorized us all and took us back home.
