Things about Turkey:
Everyone either owns a carpet shop or has a family member in the carpet business.
A number of Turks know about Texas and can rattle off cities. One did ask us where we left our horses and guns, though.
Lying about almost anything is apparently common if the object is to impress Western women.
Getting Turkish men to not give you their phone number is more difficult than you might expect.
Watching young Anatolian men tremble at the prospect of sliding cash into a belly dancer's top is surprisingly adorable.
It gets damn cold here.

Off to Cannakale and Troy tomorrow!
