Tea Time in Turkey

Tea Time in Turkey

Author: Scott Quigley
Binding: Kindle Edition
Description: This is a book which brings to life the fascinating history of a nation and illuminates the modern culture and people of Turkey through stories of our adventures in this great country,

It is an entertaining and humourous book, written in an easy style, as if the author were in a cafe chatting to the reader. The pages recount our expectations, surprises and frustrations, the warm welcomes, cultural confusions and pure enjoyment of the land and people which together create what is modern Turkey.
The book is aimed at readers who want something alternative to a travel guide, an entertaining read which paints a picture of a nation, animating the people and bringing the history and culture to life. It is different to other books on Turkey because of the style in which it is written and also because the are no other books on Turkey which combine a complete historical picture with personal adventures. The condensed history of their fascinating and entertaining past is written in the same jesting and easy style as the rest of the book. It is presented in separate sections so that you can easily refer to them again.
