uma boa maneira de dizer adeus a Buket Uzuner

"Like nearly everyone in Turkey, she, too, appreciated a refreshing splash of lavender eau de cologne, a ritual widely observed when welcoming guests, sending off restaurant customers or as a staple of long-distance bus travel, during which, every few hours, passengers cupped palms to an attending proffering cologne from a bottle. Belgin had even tried orange, lilac and pine cologne, as well as novelties like tobbaco, tea and banana, but nothing compared to lavender. Nothing."
