That is the Turkish word for stuffed -- they use it to describe grape leaves stuffed with rice as well as local taxi-buses. And us, after all this Turkish food. We have eaten:
--Lamb stewed in tomatoes
--Chicken kebabs that put all others to shame
--Lavosh bread right out of a wood-fired oven
--Baba ghanoush, yogurt sauce, hummus and spicy couscous
--Tiny lamb-filled ravioli in yogurt sauce
--Tomatoes! Oh, the tomatoes!
--Cucumbers, olives, peaches, melons, all grown near where they're eaten
--Fresh fish right out of the Bosphorus
Writing this list has made me hungry and I just finshed eating my eggs...
