Yulia is missing.


Yulia Solodyankina is from Moscow studying in Edinburgh. She hasn't been seen for 14 days. She was last seen leaving the Wee Red Bar in Lauriston Street on the 6th of June. She could be anywhere in the UK or abroad. Please keep your eyes open for her and keep her in your hearts and prayers.

This is an old photo. I decided to post in memoriam when we drove past the other

Cafe Turquaz, a mediterranean style cafe at 119 Nicolson Street is my favourite. It serves all the usual coffees, great Turkish coffee, Turkish apple tea, mezze, felafel, salads, panini, moussaka and a fabulous selection of cakes.

Here are two of the people who run it and make it a lovely, friendly, relaxing place to visit.
