When Is A Replica A Fake?

I’m traveling at the moment, doing research for my latest book a ‘Travelogue’ and I am currently in Turkey a land of fate watches, fake drugs, fake rugs, fake smiles, fake handbags and fake promise.

The odd thing about Turkey is that everything or more or less is fake, the Turks proudly sell fake this and fake that even the name is fake, its a bird they don’t eat!

The Turks are so proud of the fakes that they sell that they go just a bit over the top with the advertising on their shops like the one below for instance!

I tell you what though I was interested to know what the next shops good were like – what is a “Pashmina Silk Sunglasses Hat?” beats me as does a Cashmere Shawl Battery!

In an idle moment I wondered whether the Taxi which even though it is spelt Taksi is instantly recognised was fake and then I looked again saw that it was a ‘Dacia’ and realised that no one in their right mind would fake a ‘Dacia’ would they – let alone own one!

Of course I would like to immediately apologise to all Dacia owners out there if they have bought my latest book or are planning to buy it, if not the insult stays.
