Raindrop Turkish House is on the Mayor's International Newsletter, Volume 7, Issue 12

Standing in sharp contrast to its surroundings on West Bellfort Avenue and proximal to Beltway 8, the Raindrop Turkish House (RTH) prides itself on representing a little piece of Turkey on 30,000 square feet of real estate in Southeast Houston. With shimmering white walls and a ubiquitous turquoise blue, RTH's administrative staff know that the building probably raises a good many questions on first impression, but they are more than ready to supply answers.
