Previous month I have posted about a Triportor. Last week in Izmir I have detected another one, again in blue but this time paint-modified. Does this scooter-like van have any horsepower? I mean tiger power
100, hundred. With this photo I will explain a story behind languages.
Many years ago, the French used to use the number “00” to denote a building with a toilet at the end of the block. Thus, in old French, sans numero was slang for toilet. When the French arrived in Turkey, many people misinterpreted sans as cent, the French word for “100” and thus in translation applied the moniker yüz numara which is still in standard use today.
