Yes, I'm jealous

Both Toño & I are on business trips this week.

In a couple of hours, my plane will take me to Turkey. Although, I'd been working almost two years for Turkey, I've never been there*. Strangely, my trip is not even related to a Turkish project...

Meanwhile, Toño will be on a business trip on his own to Geneva. He will be a member of the jury, which is selecting the best wines of Geneva (prix de la presse).

In other words, while Toño will be tasting cream of the crop wines, I will be sitting in boring meetings sipping Turkish coffee. And yes, I'm jealous.

*Though, I've seen Turkish soil when travelling Syria.

Gomad, just go to a tea-bar or in ti a hamam, there is not only old spice, but also young guns. :-) Propz Pilgrim

At least you wont have to spit the coffee out after each mouthful!!!!

Enjoy the coffee for me - have to be careful with the stuff.

Didn't stop me enjoying a heavily laced one after lunch out on the seventh! Maybe I should stick to coffee laced with nice alcohol based other drinks??

@Pilgrim & Mickle... I completely forgot that tea is the most important drink in Turkey. A nice lady brought me a new glass of tea every 30 minutes.

@Pilgrim... In a month it will be 20 years that I enjoyed a hamam for the first time. This was in Aleppo, Syria.
