Puns aside, I agree with Nakate concerning the rocks Turkey may have, or have access to through their companies, ali and otherwise. Turkey is well positioned to do business with the 'stans, they're operting in Albania, and where else?

London is obvious: deep capital markets, AND the HQ for the werewolves of London, ie. BHP, RIO, Xstrata, Anglo American.

Turkey's rocks(?), London's money/connections(?).

One thing is certain, she's not vacationing, but who could blame her for a little Xmas shopping on the side.
