Evil eye reminds me of gypsies LOL and basically what you’re saying they read tea leaves they do the readings ….Interesting
Well, this kind of social distance exists only in northern Europe and in United States (and maybe in Japan and far east). Everywhere else there is nothing criminal if you touch someone, if you look at him just because he attracted your attention somehow, you hug him for saying hello or goodbye or offer somebody a dish saying "Hello new neighbour" I have seen this close attitude from Latin America, through Spain, Italy, Bulgaria, Iran and Morocco. When I was a kid a neighbour would slap me if i did something wrong. And then my mum would slap me as well and saying thanks to the neighbour that takes care of her kid. Back in time all society was responsible for the kids, now parents are on their own with that "My business".
I like your video
Well im from Kashmir u should come here its a beautiful place . whenever i see some foreigner i start staring at dem its not because im rasist its human behaviour when we see some new guest our brain just star to process things like from which country he or she is .is she wearing a dress traditional to there country
But yes i know stare from some one is annoying and a bad habit.
Why no youtuber puts captions thinking that the Turks will watch
I'm Turkish, but they still stare. They just stare at every thing that is foreign to them. Like The are not gonna stare at the people that go by everyday. But they will stare at you when it's your first time yk.
Returning empty dish back is considered rude in India too. At least put a couple of chocolates.
Stare part is kinda true… we think while we stare, we see a building and stand right in front of it and just stare while thinking "is this new?" 😀 people can stare at you just because they're thinking where did you get that sweatshirt you know 🙂 and OF COURSE you have to return the plate full, and not take the plate is sooooo rude like I never heard of it, I even never thought about it.
And also, like you said, we're just friendly, maybe too much but understanding that makes everything so much easier for you:)
Ps: our national holidays are very important like April 23, agust 30 ect but I think if you are foreigner who visits Turkey, I have to warn you about November 10. So it's not a holiday actually, Mustafa Kemal Atatürk(the founder of Turkish Republic)'s death anniversary. He died at 9.05, so every year, at 9.05 on November 10 all of turkish people stop doing everything what they do and show their respect for Atatürk. You can hear siren or a sad music also. So dont be scared (I heard some people do) it's very normal for us
They gossip a lot
I don't think they stare at you because you are black. Btw staring can be really annoying but let me tell you this, and this is one of the things that I am proud of with my country: Turkish people are not being racist when it comes to people's skin color. Of course there might be some exceptions, but honestly we don't really care if you are black or white.
Oh so happy I found your channel I am also living in Turkey and I am a student here and also started my YouTube channel a few months ago
