After gym training, Liz and I walk a few blocks to this tiny spot serving Turkish food. Three shisha’s stand proudly at the windowsill, like ushers giving a preview of what’s in store. We were to spend our 8th anniversary meal here a few days ago but our plans changed. We’re still in the mood to celebrate, though. Besides, I brought along my new gem, the used Pentax FA 50/1.4 I bought earlier from a music store – another reason to celebrate.
Beyond the shawarma, the only other thing we’re familiar with is ‘kebabs’. We order the Adana and Yogurtlu kebabs, and the Chicken Tikka. We wait fifteen minutes.
The owner’s name is Christine. We were told she’s still single. Her trip to the Middle East influenced her opening and running this small place. She allows me to take a few snaps – I do so with the FA 50/1.4 on the Pentax K5. Nice way to end the week and at the same time start Liza’s extended school break.
(I’m blogging this five hours after leaving Al Turqo and I haven’t eaten dinner yet. That’s how full I am.)
