Merhaba Faith Michel, nasilsinis ? Good looking stand you've built. I was stationed in Ankara back in 1990-1991 in Balgat (Ankara Air Station) and learned enough Turkish to get me back to the base, or get me in trouble LOL :-) I am still trying to find a good Turkish restaurant here in the USA....loved doner kebabs and ekmek, but wasn't a fan of Efes or Raki. For those not familiar with Efes (Turkish beer brand), it wasn't regulated very well....drank 6 one night, barely caught a buzz, drank 4 the next night and was hammered.... Raki is the "national drink" of Turkey ( or at least that's what I was told) and is similar to Ouzo with a strong black licorice flavor....it's clear, but when you mix water 50/50 with it, it turns a violet color, which is kinda cool. Didn't get out to see much of the country, but what I did see was beautiful !! I wish I knew about Turkish walnut when I was there....I would have bought a ton of it !!
