Turkey Sketch: Nigde Gazozu

Nigde Gazozu drawing from Bor

I made this drawing in a small town in south-central Turkey, Bor, in a cafe while babysitting a 5 year old — she was drawing portraits of her family, I drew this bottle of soda, or Gazoz.  The local brand is Nigde Gazozu. It’s like Turkish Sprite, you can get a bottle of it by going into any jewelry, clothing, or electronics shop — the owner will offer you coffee, tea, or Gazoz to make your shopping visit a little more refreshing.
