We found a great restaurant on our second night in Istanbul and got chatting to Huseyin, the waiter who, like any Turk we have met so far, was extremely friendly. His English was superb. Towards the end of the Lucullan meal. Abbe said, 'We're on a 17 day tour of Turkey and I don't want to get fat'. Quick as a flash, Huseyin came back, 'well you've come to the wrong country'.
