pumpkin socks

As with all languages Turkish has its share of words that sound similar but have completely different meanings. Take çorap (sock) and çorba (soup) for instance.

While chatting to the pumpkin stallholder I inadvertently told him that in Britain people use pumpkins for making socks as opposed to the sweet dessert that is generally made in Turkey.

The error was quickly sorted out and we had a good laugh about it.

(I get my revenge when the locals confuse soap and soup!)
