The Copper Cleaning Guy

So… on our way to Mt Nemrut last weekend we stopped in one of the market towns famous for copper. On our way out of the market we saw this man cleaning copper. First he fires it, then brushes it, and finally dips the clean item in water, making it sizzle. Good to know for future reference. Our tour guide said she felt sorry when she saw him working at this age because it was likely that none of his sons took over his profession.

Firing

Notice the green flame

Sizzle!
