    Ketenciler Turistik Esya: you are very only

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Every time I walked past this shop the man would invite me in for tea. Since in Konya it's rather problematic for a woman to enter a restaurant alone I would take him up on his offer. His name was Mehmet Ali Ketenci, he was quite gentle and sweet. He spoke no English. I spoke no Turkish. We would drink tea not speaking and smile at each other. His shop is jam packed with Moslem rosaries and various Sufi plaques & paraphanelia. I purchased several prayer beads and some beautiful mounted metallic plagues in copper featuring dervishes. His prices are very fair & he is a real gentleman. While in the shop one day a Turkish soldier came in and joined us for tea. He was amazed that I was traveling by myself. He told me in English, which I asked him to write down, "You are very only". It was a poetic moment.

    What to buy: beautiful framed wall plaques of Sufi Derivishes with inscriptions in Arabic.

    What to pay: twenty to thirty dollars for more stuff than you
    can carry. Say hello to Mehmet for me.
