    Venus: a common turkish beer

    There a few local brands of beer in Turkey. Efes and Venus were the most popular ones when I visited.
    They are good and available almost everywhere, though not so cheap when compared to other soft drinks.

    waterlike beer

    Local beer called efes is almost like water a tasteless.
    The beer you see on the picture is even more tasteless !
    For good alcoholic drinks you are in the wrong country.

    freshly baked bread in Ortakoy

    the Turkish people love their breads and there are many bakeries that serve many varieties mostly of the sweet kind. This one is located in Ortakoy.

    Breakfast traditionally consists of bread, cheese, fresh tomatoes, cucumbers and olives. Be sure and try the wonderful cherry juice, too.

    The Bounty of Turkey. Fruits nuts and Raki are part of every meal. Turks like to feed each other. Odd at first, but very roamntic!
