Lost in Translation

It's amazing the number of western chain restaurants that are here in Istanbul. There are over 40 Starbucks, and an uncountable multitude of McDonald's, Burger Kings, Pizza Huts and even Arby's.

Last night we went to a local mall and I bought a milkshake at Burger King. Krista noticed that their version of "Kid's Club" here in Turkey was called "Chub City."

Now that's truth in advertising!


  1. Wow! I was in Istanbul in 1993 (let's get this out front- HATED Turkey) Anyway, the only thing we had to eat were _____________ (fill in the blank with any food item, ex. "green beans") soaked in tons of oil- like inches of oil.

    And Twix.

  2. Sounds kind of like those new Subway commercials where they show people at drive-thrus ordering "love handles" and "thunder thighs". Haha!
