The Evil Eye

The charm

Here in Turkey you are never safe. Danger lurks in every face. At any time someone can turn the evil eye on you. Maybe because they didn’t like something you did, or maybe because they’re jealous of you.

But don’t be too worried. There is some protection available. It comes in the form of a charm you can keep about you to ward off evil eyes. It looks like an eye, sometimes with a ribbon on top. And in these heavily-touristed times they come in stickers, keychains, pillowcases, earrings – just about anything you can think of, really.

Turkish truckers know all about it. The superstitious among them paint large evil eye charms onto their vehicles to keep them safe on the road.

Why have one when you can have two?
