Dinner in Turkey

Dinner in Turkey - Family Dinner - We feel very privileged to get this insight into their lives and it will long remain a highlight of Istanbul. We recommend this to everyone. Afterwards we walk the cobbled back-streets of the area with the guide and drop into a local tea house. While drinking tea, sampling a waterpipe, playing backgammon and enjoying views over the Marmara Sea, we discuss Turkey and its quest for membership of the European Union. I conclude that while many in Istanbul see a future in Europe, much of the rest of the country and the government is reluctant to give up the culture of its Eastern roots. Ps If I was a singer my song wouls be " This country is on fire !!" Turkey Rock !!
