a bunch of half blue-half cream colored mini vans that drive in a very specific loop and pick people up off the street for 1.85 TL, typically making change for riders while shifting gears.

metro ticket with 12,10 TL left; kuaför business card; 3 safranbolu müze tickets; a raffle at the kapadokya vineyard;
a packet of dried hot red pepper seeds; mrs. jordan matthews’ istanbul uçak ticket; student museum admissions card;

and most important of all, i found the receipt from my last bodo’s of fourth year.
oh what i would do for a plain bagel with cinnamon sugar + butter.
