It is illegal to deface a photo/picture of Ataturk! As John says, pictures are everywhere - not only on the money but also in every shop/office/home. He is well loved and rightly so.

Turkish people are very tolerant about other religions, Turkey being a secular country. The middle and younger generations are even more tolerant than the older generation, and younger women often don't wear the scarf. This is also the case for the more middleclass/upper-class Turkish female - who dress more westernised - and working class and (I apologise for using this word about them but it is a fact) peasant women who dress more traditionally.

Also many Turks drink alcohol, sometimes to excess which can cause horrendous fights - their national drink is an alcoholic one (Raki) !! I think that fact is very amusing!!
