Whenever you try to display or recreate something from a bygone era in Turkey, you will hear the word "nostalji". The dictionary, of course, says it means "nostalgia" but the Turks (in the towns if not the villages) often use it with a slight wry smile as if to say "why waste your money on such arty crafty tosh, you plonker?"
Although officialdom, rather belatedly, is recognising the importance of the country's rich heritage and old buildings are being lovingly restored, many Turks seem to put a greater value on the latest gadget, mobile phone app or having full central heating.
This is why you will see pieces of Greek or Roman columns used as flowerpot stands or to support door jambs as in the pictures below.
When we first arrived in Kaplan there were a number of artefacts and implements in the house that we vowed to restore and display. One was an old plough. I cleaned it up using a combination of baking powder, vinegar, some industrial cleaner and a wire brush. I then painted it. I am now waiting for a visitor to offer to buy it. Not for show, naturally, but to use on their allotment.
