💬 Comments on the video

Hi guys, the funniest thing I had in Turkey was a haircut, I sat the chair I told him what I want he said " do you want shampooing " I said No, but I got it anyway, then he gave me a shoulder and back massage, and finally he set my ear hair on fire, it's something I'll never forget, my wife was in stitches with laughter, stay safe and healthy 😀🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧

I have never seen water that clear and Dolphins in Istanbul. Maybe this Corona-Virus will remind us to think about how we are treating our environment.

Thank you for all your lovely comments about Istanbul and the Turkish people. It's showing us that you have a beautiful heart and soul. As you know we are going through difficult times our country is losing its respectability against the world but I'd like to be optimistic and say everything will be good 🌟
