Big news from Turkey

From Hurriyet:

"The southeastern Anatolian city of Gaziantep has become the first in the country to have a public toilet that meets European Union standards. The toilet facility was built in the city’s Türktepe neighborhood, along Culture Road, and cost 80,000 euros. It is reportedly very comfortable".

I particularly like the address.

Yes, decent bogs are the sine qua non of Kultur.

Odd fack: Hurriyet and Uhuru are from the same Arabic root.

PS The South East is largely Kurdish. Perhaps this is an attempt to appease the mutinous Kurds with clean toilets?

PPS Did you know the Aerodrome Hotel has gone bankrupt? Prob the dirty toilettes?

TEE - Purchance. An intriguing notion.
