By the way, I´m not talking about giving gifts to everybody you meet. I think some of your reactions to his idea are a bit overdrawn. For example, if you go to the same restaurant for a week, and these people give you free tea every time, help you figure out your way around town...things like that, they have really helped you! And you want to show that you appreciate that with a little something extra. What´s wrong with that?

 

My first time in Turkey I had some people who helped me so much, but I didn´t see them the year after that, so I was never able to really thank them extra much. That´s why I´m prepared since then

 Forget the drop (liquorice), many people from other countries dislike them. I was joking.

I know my boyfriend was disguisted when he first tried it, lol. But can we all agree that bringing some small gifts in case you meet people you want to thank in a special way, is a good idea (bringing it back to the topic )
