Re: English translations for an American Lady

Who is Victor Meldew??? I quite got the Monica label for your crockery, towels, etc.  Ok, another Yank question..what is Effes..is that just beer?  and I guess mozzies are mosquitoes? Brolly for umbrella? I thought we had a lot of slang over here, but you all take the cake!
 and no, never been to Great Britain, but hope to some day. I am part Welsh.(Jones clan). And I have an accent even here!

Hehe Superrn..!!  ;D  Glad you find us amusing...we have to ''av a larrrffff'' at ourselves sometimes too..!!   ;)  To add to John''s comments - EFES is the trade name for turkish brand lager...delicious and thirst quenching - and great when served in frozen glasses!! 

Enjoy your time in Kalkan in September!   :)

Nothing is really work unless you would rather be doing something else.

and you may inadvertently offend seasoned Kalkaners if you refer to Efes as ''just beer'' lol
