Speaking of Drinking
This culture is powered by caffeine. I normally drink filtered coffee at home in the morning, then have a Nescafe (I know, I know…) break midmorning at school, cappuccino at the faculty restaurant after lunch, and tea in the late afternoon. If we have guests for dinner I make decaf coffee for them with dessert. Hubby also drinks Turkish coffee given the opportunity. Any visit to friend or colleague comes with an invitation to “drink something,” a lovely gesture of hospitality.
