Starbucks Around the World: Kushadasi, Turkey

Disclaimer: Since Travelpod does not allow you to export blogs, I shall be bringing old entries to you slowly, but surely, through good, old-fashioned (and painstakingly arduous) Cut-and-paste.

August 13, 2008

This is, by far my favorite and most memorable Starbucks experience around the world.  We booked a private tour guide and at the end of the day when he asked if there was anything else we wanted to see I spoke up with giddy: “Oh yes! Starbucks!”  Having just visited ancient ruins and traditional rug making communes, his reply was an almost aghast, “You want to go to Starbucks!?!”

Insert extreme American tourist embarrassment here.

But, paying in turkish lira for a mango passion fruit frappuchino and a mug, genuine fake bag in hand containing a genuine genuine Turkish rug….. unrepeatable (assumedly), and fantastic.  Big thumb’s up.
