Tan Line of My Sandals
Mujgan Afra Ozceylan
As a law student in Istanbul, Muigan Ozceylan revels in the smells of exotic spices, the sight of silk scarves draped on ancient walls, and the sounds of her friends’ laughter as she wanders the cobblestone streets in her Birkenstocks. Adjusting to cold, organized Toronto is hard until summer finally comes. Then she sees that familiar tan lines appear on her feet, thanks to her old sandals, and she begins to feel at home.
