Afternoon Tea With The Sidecar

In the southeastern Anatolian countryside around Malatya and Kahramanmaraş, the small motorbike with a sidecar for your friend to ride along is a pretty common sight. Same goes for the artistic expression on the sidecar – similar to the painted slogans Turkish truck drivers use to decorate their vehicles. This picture comes from a midweek afternoon at a Turkish teahouse like any other, near the site of mountain springs that continuously produce bubbly mineral water. It’s said to be good for kidney stones, but I should give fair warning – it tastes like rotten eggs.
