ISTANBULLinday Lohan, a Hollywood star known for her colorful lifestyle, has visited Turkey once again, Doğan News Agency has reported.
Lohan, who was seen with a headscarf in Istanbul’s İstinye Park mall, said to reporters she loved Turkey and that Turkey was her second home.

The 29-year-old star told The Sun newspaper: “I’m a very spiritual person and I’m really open to learning.”
Lohan visited Syrian refugees in the Sultanbeyli district of Istanbul on Sept. 26, 2016, state-run Anadolu Agency reported.

The actress also took to social media to express her feelings about the visit before leaving the country.
The actress shared pictures of herself at a refugee camp in Turkey with the hashtag “the world is bigger than five,” a motto frequently used by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan in reference to the U.N. Security Council’s number of permanent members.
Previously, Lohan visited a refugee camp in the Nizip district of the southeastern province of Gaziantep. Lohan met with Syrian refugees during her visit and shared a photo over Instagram of herself and an aid worker at the camp.
“I met a wonderful aid worker (Azize) at The Refugee Camp in Antep,” Lohan wrote on Oct. 8, 2016.
“She saw that my eyes lit up when I told her that her headscarf is beautiful. She waved to me and said, come with me, I followed her and she gifted it to me. I was so moved and touched by this that I wanted to wear it in appreciation for all of the generosity and love I received from everyone at the camp,” she said.
