Turkish Travels No. 1
I got ripped off when I bought a couple of dürüm kebaps for lunch. Always ask for the price first. Always. Fortunately, all other purchases have gone much better. We bought candied strawberries, two varieties of Turkish Delight and other bric-à-brac. While we ate lunch, we met a Turkish doctor and his wife. The doctor asked us to take a photo of them. We obliged and then spoke to the doctor for a bit. He spoke English very well, having gone to medical school in Buffalo, NY. He told us about living in Istanbul and encouraged us to take a boat ride on the Bosphorus. After lunch, we took his advice and went to the shore looking for a boat to hire.
