Default a story about hedo

well i don't know if it's real or fiction but just wanted to share with you guys. i'm gonna try to translate it from turkish.sorry for my english.

"couple of years ago, hedo and his wife were wandering around the istanbul(where hedo was born and grew up) and there was a little boy selling some kind of bagels(with sesame, it's very popular in turkey). so hedo stopped by and asked the little kid
- how much?
- 30 kuruş
- so how many bagels are there? how much do all of those cost?
- there are about 70 - 80 bagels, so it would make about 24 lira total. the boy replied.

then hedo paid 30 liras (about 20 dollars) to the boy but didn't get any bagels. kept walking with his wife. so his wife asked hedo that why he gave the money for nothing. hedo said "forget it, don't ask" but she insisted. then hedo said

- did you see the counter?(which the boy carries the bagels in it) there was a name scraped on it.
-so?
- it was written hidayet(hedo's full name)

so hedo used to sell bagels to earn money when he was a kid, and it was hedo's counter..."

as i've said i don't know if the story is true, but i know that hedo did make money by selling bagels.

yeah alot of us there are born in canada really have no idea how easy we have it. Even if your parents dont have alot of money all you have to do is get good grades you can get the goverment to pay for your post secandary schooling or atleast get a low interest loan. Im not talking about the people on this forum i just mean the youth in general.

those bagels are fantastic. i ate them all the time when i was in turkey (although i once saw a vendor in istanbul taking a leak against the side of his bagel cart... needless to say i didn't buy one from him).

oddly the farther i went eastward in turkey, the less of those bagel vendors i saw. maybe one of our turkish friends can help me understand why. is that a western turkey thing? a tourist thing? i saw far fewer in the cappadocia area, but of course it is also less populous. but also in konya, where i spent a couple of weeks, i don't remember seeing nearly as many of those vendors as i saw in istanbul or anywhere along the mediterranean coast. any thoughts as to why? i should add that i never made it as far as eastern turkey - only to kayseri and kirsehir (can't remember which is farther east) - so i don't really know what is popular there.

I'd argue that some european countries have it even easier than we do.... their education is FREE.

No 10-20K debt when you get out of school. Now THAT's nice.

well, it's not a western turkey thing actually, but yeah in istanbul you can find them more easily. the thing is, there are not that much vendors in smaller cities which you've mentioned, you need to go to the bakery stores. the best bagels in turkey are made in ankara. and lastly, you should try it with cheese and tea.

oh god, i'm hungry.

Yeah I watched Micheal Moore's movie "Sicko" and he was talking to some Frenchmen and they were saying that the government pays for College education and the miniumum annual vacation days is 5 weeks. All this with universal health care too.

i get what your saying but i was talking about countrys where children dont really have a chance to make something of there life unless they come from a rich family. All you have to do is try in canada and you can make a pretty good life for your self. Alot of kids espacially the ones whos parents imigraded here so there kids have oportunites that they otherwise wouldnt have just waste it away.

I too had to sell stuff to make money when I was a little kid in Turkiye because I had a big family and only my father was working. We then didn't even have toys to play with and we were making our own toys ourselves. Kids don't value anything they have nowadays because they have everything plenty. Not only in Canada, same in Turkiye too.

Hedo is a nice guy.

Sometimes after a gig late I night I go through the drive thru of the McDoanld's I used to work at. I make fun of the losers that work there now.
