Half an hour later? Yes. Do you want a haircut? Yes. Okay. Are you available? Anyone waiting? This reminds me of Narwana It is a town in the North of Haryana, bordering Punjab As kids, we used to go there to meet our grandparents Those streets were like this only the 'railway Road' there used to be a bit congested But it was something in the middle of a city and village.
I'm not sure how is my haircut going to be today? Explaining the Barber in a foreign country is not an easy task This is a challenge of getting a haircut in a foreign country I will get sick if I travel with wet hairs this smells good he is checking my channel Wow, that truck is really loaded up! Village farmers brought something to sell in this market They are now going back with the things they purchased. The authentic Turkish Village experience has started now He is Gokhan's Dad He's taking us to his village in this truck.
