Just concentrate on the music.

And keep one eye on me.

- Ready?

- OK.

Let's go then.

I'll make a short speech.

Once I've announced you,

leave a short pause, then come out.

Good evening.


...we'll be presenting you

with a whole feast of music.

I'll also be introducing you

to a young new talent, my co-performer.

Here she is... Nee!

- I asked for two separate rooms though.

- But the rooms are separate.

There's just a door in-between.

Close it and you have separate rooms.

There's just a shared exit.

It's our suite.

Don't you have any other rooms then?

- Hotel Hitit?

- It's OK. It isn't a problem.

There's a customer here.

Call me back later.

OK. C'mon, I have a customer. Bye.

- Can someone help with the bags?

- Sure. Ali!

- How do you find the place?

- It's not bad.

- It isn't exactly clean though.

- No, c'mon, it's fine.

- You sleep in here then.

- Sure, OK.

OK, how much is that altogether?

Four lira 50.

Thank you.

Let me give you your receipt.

- Morning!

- Good morning.

I got some things for breakfast.

- How do you like your eggs?

- Soft-boiled.

Not quite soft-boiled actually.

You know, so the yolk's runny

and the white is just set.

I've had worse happen before,

you know.

In Istanbul.

I was doing gigs

in Kalam at the time.

Selim arrived,

God rest his soul.

The backstage door was open.

I usually kept it closed.

But for some reason

it was open that day.

Poor man had never seen me

without my wig.

- More tea?

- I still have some.

There was the Yavuz he knew,

and now this other Yavuz.

Selim died of cancer.

Long before his time.



See you then, OK.

- Shall I put some cream on?

- No, thank you.

- Powder?

- No, I don't use it.

I hope that feels better.

- What do I owe you?

- Five lira.
