He would then (still with his foot hard to the floor) turn around and talk with the Blonde One asking where she was from and somehow still managing to weave in and out of traffic at an outrageous speed. We had been "warned" by a chatty London cabby that the men in Turkey were fast but this was not necessarily what we thought he was ...
