Without knowing the local language(s) I got into many funny incidents and troubles. This section of Dhristi.com will cover such travel experiences.
Istanbul, year 2006, a time when GPS was not actively used like now. On a weekend I asked the hotel reception … Is there a place where I can see Tulip flowers ? The answer was ..yes, 15 minutes walk from here you will find a Park …. I started walking, after sometime I found a board ‘ Oto Park >> ‘ .. followed the way and finally reached a closed area with many Cars parked .. I asked a person there, where is the Oto Park ? he said this is ‘Oto Park’. In Turkish language ‘Oto Park’ is Car Park, Parking lot … 🙂
