Food, we can’t write about Turkey without writing about the food. Our lunch in Turkey has been the best: durum, doner kebab, shashlicks, tasty fresh bread, veggies, cheese etc. The fruit is amazing: cherries, apples, apricots, peaches, watermelons, grapes. Many times we have been gifted fruit on the road from friendly people waving us to come over at fruit stalls. And then there are the Turkish deserts or sweet snacks such as baklava. A traditional drink is Ayran, a yoghurt salty drink which a lot of people drink.
Practical words: Hello = Merhaba, Goodbye = Güle güle, Thank you = Teşekkür ederim, Water = Su, Tent = Çadır
