First capital of the Ottoman Empire: home of peaches, kebabs, chestnuts and textiles
Towels drying outside a barber shop. Turkish for hairdresser or barber is kwaför... try saying it out loud... if you know French it should sound familiar!
"kwaför" Hey, you're right! Cool!They dry the towels out on the sidewalk? Gosh, at least here in Manila, they do it out back. If you use the sidewalk here, they'll just turn black again because of the pollution from cars.
That reminds me of my host family father using "merci" in public transactions in Bursa. I guess there was a strong French connection at one time. Very interesting post of a typical detail.
