      ... interview us. He was doing a report for school. Children learn English in school here. Sinan introduced himself and spoke a few words in English but asked Sue the questions in Turkish. Over the three days lots of friends and relatives dropped in to look at us. Sometimes they talked to Sue in Turkish but most did not.

      The Karacan's were all delightful and so good to us, it was a wonderful three days.

      Tomorrow we move on to ...

      WOW, what an exciting day! We again caught the 9:00am dolmuş to Yeşılyurt. This is about 10 kms from Muğla. Our first project today was to complete the threading of the heddles. We were working away when the man from the TV station arrived to film us. He made videos and took pictures and interviewed Sue (in Turkish) while we warped the loom, wound bobbins, and learned to weave with a fly shuttle. We will know tomorrow when and where ...

      Next we were making a warp. We only made a small warp - 60 metres long! Very interesting to learn, not easy to describe, so pictures. They usually make a 100 metre long warp.

      Last, but not least, we had to thread the heddles. They do this by tying on to a thread that goes through both heddles and the reed. Tomorrow lots of exciting things to ...

      On to Muğla

      A travel blog entry by sandradgillis on Apr 27, 2014

      This was a travel day from Datša to Muğla. After an easy morning with a little stoll we caught the dolmuş to Muğla. We are staying here for four nights. John and Diane left Datša for Rhodes on Saturday and will rejoin us here on Tuesday.

      This morning's walk took us past many construction sites. At one the proprietor of the restaurant next door was talking to us and ...

      ... eggplant salad. The lamb is served on large platter and covered under squares of tortilla type bread. We rolled the meat in it with tomato, onion and cucumber. It turned out to be one of the best meals we had in Turkey.

      We decided to call it a day at this glitzy Resort Hotel Safaklar along the route. A small room with curtains a bit too glittery for our taste. Also overpriced. We slept like babies though.... ...
