Turkish CIP Lounge, Istanbul

I started off this post with a picture marking my visit to this lounge at Istanbul. Later I realized it was unfair to reduce the grandness to a single photo, and to leave readers with a teaser. Here are some more pictures from this luxurious, magnanimous, state-of-the-art lounge.
