the turkish people are very friendly and we got invited quite some times for melon, tea or (nes)cafe. one morning we were invited by a turkish shepperd to his house.
he called a friend who couldn’t speak any language that we do as well. so we just sat in the house and tried to enjoy the company without too many words. it worked.
another time we bought a watermelon and were invited into a cafe to eat it there. the owner found the melon not good enough for us and soon after the melon was exchanged and we even got the money for the melon back.
