Daily Photo(s): Friendly Faces

I thought I would only have a week’s worth of daily photos, but when I went through to pick them out, there were a lot that I still wanted to share.  So I’ll split them between here and my facebook page.

Have I mentioned that everyone was beautiful in Turkey?  I really wanted to stop every person I saw and ask if I could take their picture.  But I am shy, so I did not.  But I did get up the nerve to ask two men with whom we had spent some time.

He owned the restaurant behind him in this picture, as well as a mens’ clothing store.  He made us Turkish coffee over an open flame in his wood  burning oven, and he also tried to sell Jeff a speedo.

This gentleman owns the jewelry store behind him, and makes many pieces himself.  He made Amelia orange juice and offered me tea when I asked him for help finding an adaptor for my computer.  We sat and chatted for a while, and when I tried to pay for our drinks, he said “No, no, this is from me.  When you return with your husband, then I will let him pay.”

      Ha! Nope, but he does realize that he cannot be an honorary European until he does!
