Oto Ceyhun

On the first day I met Ersin he had to go to get his russian Lada checked at a repair shop outside of Kars. Since I didn‘t have much else to do I joined him. The guys at the workshop didn‘t mind me taking photos. In fact, they even asked to get their pictures taken. It was obviously nothing compared to the car dealers in Europe. While the first thing they do is plug your car into a computer to check for errors in Turkey they still just use pure manpower to fix any problem. And problems could be small like in Ersin’s case or bigger like the crashed car outside that was being rebuilt out of 5 different cars. Before he started the mechanic lit up his cigarette with the blow-torch that he used for welding.
