Traveller’s Tale: Glinting blue glass eyes are seen hanging off trees in Cappadocia as a protection against the ‘evil eye’. I saw them everywhere and a pretty sight it was. They are also known as nazar boncuğu in Turkey. I did wonder why the interesting looking armchair was placed under the tree? Was it left there strategically for photo ops or left behind like numerous other household articles around & on the tree?
