Turk ...ish Facebook Group

In a Dave Gorman-esque attempt to find people with a similar background, I've opened a Facebook Group solely for people from mixed Turkish descent.

So far there's only one member Can I really be the only half-breed out there? It only takes one stroll down Bar Street to indicate that this can't be true.

So if you know anyone who's half-Turkish, half-something else, please point them in the direction of the group.

I'm waiting...

Random Turkish Fact #2

When the cashier isn't looking, Turks steal plastic bags from supermarkets to use as bin bags at home. Another ploy (and the one I use) is to put every item in a separate bag. Thus ensuring you leave the supermarket stupid with carriers.

Since relocating to Izmir, I've had to source a new barber. My current find is a 17 year old called Ahmet who's been working in the same place since he was 11.

Today was only the second time I've been to see him.

After giving me a mullet and waxing my nose, he slapped me on the back and said "the missus will love it!"

Well worth £5, I reckon.
