Istanbul. June, 2007

One sure sign of Westernization: the shopping mall. This one, a short metro ride from the "old city" of Istanbul, is chock full of stores and of shoppers. And it's here, in a store devoted entirely to goods made of terrycloth (Turkish towels?), that I bought Dr. B. his favorite bathrobe. And then, like a good Westernized shopper, went back minutes later and bought myself one.

  1. I thought I was the only one who leaves the shop with one item and then goes back and buys more of the same item. What a relief to find that two out of two people do that.
