Turkey - June 2014

Family holidays

I spent a relaxing week with my mum and dad. I had previously visited all the touristy attractions so this time I could focus on spending quality time with parents and cats.

I met the neighbour and her daughter with who we went to a lovely restaurant for breakfast. They have quite a few animals with their own funny stories. A cat named tripod (have a guess), an other cat who walked like an Egyptian because of an injection  and not because of his 3 storey high fall... Then Sunny, Bonny, and something something...

Mummy told me a story, when she was looking for a Turkish card for her phone and went into a store. The guy was explaining the different rates and started by saying that it was 3liras or € who cares not important for one horse. Mummy asked him a horse? And the guy confirmed, yes one horse for three liras. Luckily she made the connection with hours. I thought it was hilarious!

An other story on misunderstandings, we were at a restaurant "Ayla or Lale" the owner passed away last year and it was taken over by someone else. We enjoyed some mezzes as a starter and some music, at one point mummy wanted a paper napkin. We didn't have any on our table but the one just next to us had some. a young waiter (a teenager) was standing next to us so mummy asked for the paper napkin while pointing at it the waiter turned to the other table, where an English family was sitting but were facing away from us. The waiter took the handbag next to the napkins and turned to us. We all started to wave our hands saying "no!", "put it back" and he did without the family realising it. I laughed for 10 minutes, daddy smiled but was annoyed because he thought we confused the waiter by saying "cantal" bag, instead of "pecete" napkin. And the waiter just looked embarrassed.

Rana, Ayla and Emre came to visit too. I had a day alone in the Serenity villa while they all went to visit Calis beach and the new apartment. While I was alone I had some cuddles with Galiba (Turkish for "it seems so") the garden kitten.
