Turkey Day 4: First Christmas dinner at BergamaWednesday, January 07, 2015
My knees always take the worst of sitting down for too long in a single position. In planes. In long night bus rides. After hours of trying to stretch my legs as much as possible in the cramped position, we finally made our way to our destination. Bergama, a town of approximately 60 000 inhabitants. In summer the small streets of the town is supposedly ridden with tourists, but this being winter (unbelievable, given the mild weather), we seemed to be the only foreigners about. The men at the local teashops stared at us. There are only ever men in public cafes in Turkey, never any women.
