Turkey, in the city

We took a side trip with a cruise into old town Antalya. With great weather and after few leaps into the sea, we reached the old sea port and spent the afternoon in town. Again we didn't hear any English spoken at all, but all of the shop owners could speak a little. We found that most bags, shirts, hats and even shoes had American brand names on them. The currency was the Turkish Lyra, which we had but all shops wanted Euros instead. All Credit cards were accepted as usual. The hookah pipes and rugs are commonly made here in Turkey and are sold everywhere. It's always fun to visit another culture.
