Turkish Cultural Festival
By: | |
Features include a food court with Turkish fare, games for children, a storyteller, ballet and folk dance performances and concerts.
The festival will open on Wednesday with an air show from Solo Turk, an aerobatics display team that is part of the Turkish Air Force. Starting at 4pm, the group will perform daring maneuvers with F-16 fighter aircraft, leaving trails of white smoke in their wake.
The first Turkish cultural festival here comes amid deepening business ties between the Qatar and Turkey.
This week for example, Turkey’s ambassador to Doha said Qatar will invest $12 billion in Turkey’s Afsin-Elbistan coal-fired power plant project. And last month, Qatar announced that its Coast Guard Service planned to buy 17 patrol boats from Turkish firm Ares Shipyard for QR200 million ($54.92 million).
Unfortunately, I've never been there, or the restaurant next to it. It's not my side of town (I'm out west). There was a great North African place called Rose des Sables in the westside which had enchanting, tasteful decor and very good food. Unfortunately it closed down. I have a friend who lives in the 18th and knows all the best places, but don't remember the name of the place I went to last time for a scruptious couscous feast.
The lebanese places on the other hand are mostly on the west side, and I can vouch for a couple of places there.
One really cool middle eastern place in Paris is the cafe on top of the IMA (Institut du Monde Arabe) cultural center, at the eastern edge of the quartier latin
