Blowing a golden horn in Istanbul

How your heroine became a victim of Ramadan

By Suzy Size, gay Istanbul

Abidin - which means slave to religion - is not the real name of that cute waiter, but Suzy will call him Abidin. He was 23 years old, had come from the impoverished Southeast of Turkey to Istanbul for work. Two of his brothers were working in other restaurants under the Galata bridge, there were 11 children in his family. Soon Abidin had figured out that Suzy was gay and written his name and cell phone number on a piece of paper which he handed to your heroine very discretely, the colleagues are watchful. He told Suzy to call him after 8 pm and that is what your horny heroine did. When Suzy called him, Abidin said he would be free at 9.30 and then they "could go somewhere", but did not want to meet her at the restaurant - be aware of the colleagues or the brothers, the people talking - so they met, opposite the Galata bridge, at the entrance of New Mosque, which is not so very new actually, it was built between 1597 and 1663.
