There are many little shops that make fresh fruit juice in the Taksim area in Istanbul. While I was walking down the road to the Galata tower I noticed this sign.
Take a closer look:
I knew I just HAD to have a freshly-squeezed juice from this stand. The only question was, which fruit juice was it going to be?
Some delicious “epple” juice? Or some refreshing “grapes” juice? Or maybe a glass of “greyfurt” juice?
In the end (= finally), I decided on the “greyfurt” juice. Normally typos (= typographical errors) are not a good thing. It looks unprofessional and new customers might decide not to do business with the company because of it.
For some reason, the typos made me smile and I found it charming.
I must admit I didn’t know the Turkish word for pomegranate (it’s “nar”) so I also learned something new that day!
