Next to the seaside in Turkey, fishermen catch fish ship and serve it quickly right there. The fish is fresh and smells nice and appetizing. They put the fish inside fresh bread and serve some salad with it.

These stands are like fast food restaurants, but they are only open from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m.

The fishermen who are serving there wear special, traditional Turkish clothes.

They call to the customers loudly, saying "Come, come, come for fresh fish, fresh and live!" They cook the fish right there, so you watch them cooking it. They ask you what things to put inside the bread with the fish.

During the preparation of your food, you get hungrier and hungrier. When, at last, you receive your meal, it smells so nice and I cannot describe the delicious taste. Not only do you enjoy the taste of the fish, but you also smell the fresh air blowing from the Black Sea to the Mediterranean Sea. Of course, the sea has a very different, fresh air that takes you to other worlds. I mean magic worlds where you can feel like you are on an isolated island like Robinson Crusoe!
