22nd Nov, 2016 @ 2:00 pm, A senior wise man just checked into our Hotel and was showing something youtube video in his cellphone to our Receptionist with nice bunch of laughing banging to my ear while i was working in my office.
Just checking around to reception what was this laugh all about. I Immediately figured it out that he was showing something comedy serial and translating in English to our Receptionist. But i was not sure if they understood the conversation/translation.
In the course of time, I have had opportunity to have conversation with him about his trip to Nepal and India. He is very simple and down to earth person and trying to explore Kathmandu valley on his own and this is his first visit to Nepal.
I was guessing that he must be some kind of celebrity but could not figure it out. After having conversation with him for about an hour, i discover that he is non other than Pekcan TÜRKEŞ – Turkey who is also very famous with the nickname as Yusuf Yusuf Usta (Maestro).
We, Hotel Ganesh Himal Team, are privileged to have opportunity to welcome him at Hotel Ganesh Himal and would like to thank him for choosing Hotel Ganesh Himal for his stay in Kathmandu.
