... Turkey called gaziantep where hope goes to die, people walking down the streets would literally stop their conversations, stand still and gawk at us in a full 180 degrees until we had walked past them. On a side note - Have you ever wondered where a Lacoste tracksuit goes when it dies? Synthetic heaven ( on the back of a world famous knacker) ?
