Travellers often underestimate the depth of cultural isolation they can face abroad, particularly in a country with a different language. Most newcomers find Turkey a very ‘foreign’ country, despite its western-looking secular society, long history of absorbing different cultures and hundreds of thousands of annual visitors. Not surprisingly, many people find certain aspects of Turkish life alien – and some come unstuck as a result.
