I finally left the barber's, transfigured, delighted, glorying in the fact that I should no longer desecrate a beautiful city by appearing in it in a frock-coat and a round hat. Hats like ours seem so ridiculous to Orientals that in their schools they always keep a Frankish hat to put on the heads of ignorant or naughty children. It is the "fool's cap" of the Turkish schoolboy.
