What is a "minaret?"  Is it like a croquette?  I admit, I had to look it up.  Minarets are those tall, slender towers that rise above mosques.  You might say it's a mosque's version of a church steeple.  Well, everytime that Felix Widmer, TWR's International Director for Europe, visits Istanbul and sees all of the minarets rising above the city, he is called to pray to the One True God.
