Turkey is a beautiful country much greener than I would have ever thought. High mountains, good food and a reasonable pricelevel.
If you avoid the worst touristplaces people are also quite friendly in a nice way.
If you ever considred buying a carpet, Turkey is the country to do it. But watch up so you don't get fooled and always bargain as far as you can. The best place to buy a carpet is in the carpet-communities where they both sell carpets and do the wool and the silk form the beginning and teach girls/women how to weave the carpets. At those places you get the real thing and the beautiful things.
