I’m enjoying my time in Pittsburgh. We’ve done the incline and the Cathedral of Learning (way cool). We stopped at Falling Water and the crash sight of United 93 (moving). I’ve walked the streets of downtown and taken a Ducky Tour. I even ate at the Dirty “O”. However, the most remarkable thing I’ve seen is the guy at the Turkish Restaurant. He doesn’t take credit cards. Not remarkable in itself. But when we asked if he took such, he said, no, but you can pay me tomorrow when you come back.
It wasn’t just lip service, because a shabby looking workman came in and he took some bottled water from the cooler and sheepishly asked, “Can I pay you tomorrow?” The Turkish Guy said, “Sure, and take a Snapple for your boss.”
Looking out for the hard-working blue-collar man. That guy’s in Pittsburgh running a YUMMY restaurant: The Istanbul Grill.
