U.S. billionaire Elon Musk reportedly visited a traditional Turkish bath in capital Ankara after his meeting President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan on Wednesday at the Presidential Complex, during which several issues including an agreement with Airbus on TÜRKSAT 5A and 5B satellites, as well as technological developments in Turkey were discussed.
According to Turkish media outlet Habertürk, Musk was given a traditional bubble massage by Ali Güvenç, who has been working as a professional masseur for 41 years. The masseur told Habertürk that Musk was very friendly and even asked him his name in Turkish. Güvenç also added that he jokingly asked for an electric car, which was politely rejected by a smiling Musk.
The relaxing massage treatment at the traditional Turkish bath lasted for about one and half hours and was followed by a dinner at a kebab restaurant in Ankara's Çankaya district.
After eating traditional kebab, Musk and his entourage chose a dessert known as Katmer, which is a speciality from southeastern Gaziantep province. The entrepreneur also wrote down a thank you note, before leaving for the US.
Musk also previously hit the headlines after sharing a photograph of himself at the mausoleum of Turkey's founding father Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, which received 1,000,000 likes as of Saturday, becoming the billionaire's most liked post on the social media platform.
