A souvenir from Turkey

Nothing edible, but I thought you guys would enjoy seeing a picture like this. :D



Not sure what it says, but this was written on the glass wall of a flower shop in Istanbul.

Re: A souvenir from Turkey

"flower stop". Or "flower station" sounds better in English I guess.

Re: A souvenir from Turkey

Thanks o.c. for translation. That sounds fit to the way it's displayed.

That's pity. And it appears the registrant of IDN is different from that of ascii.

Re: A souvenir from Turkey

Oops. So they own the IDN but are not using it even for redirection. That's silly.

Page widening makes it hard to reply.

Domain Name: cicekduragi.com
Registrant: *******@gmial.com ??!

Can't spell or what?

Thais do that. They brand their shop as "whatever.com" but the domain isn't even registered or owned by someone else! Guess they aren't online yet....

Hope Turkey is proving a great adventure for you. What camera are you using?

Re: A souvenir from Turkey

Japanese do that too (i mean, branding websites with IDNs they don't even own). But in this case, the Turkish flower shop does own the IDN and doesn't use it. What's the point of registering it then, I wonder.

I'm actually already back from Turkey. It's been about a week or so in Japan I think. I used my xperia mini to take the picture and that flower shop photo is the only photo I took in Turkey.
