    ... and getting to know each other. On the Monday the work started; this consisted of 4 hours per day from 10am-2pm, 5 days per week. The work itself was very easy; we painted the walls and dog houses, but the majority of the time was spent looking after the dogs and ensuring that they were okay. There were always new puppies arriving each day so much of the time was spent playing ...

    Again we made our way to YeşIlyurt for our final day of weaving. Lots to do. First, we finished weaving, so our projects could come off the looms. Then, we learned how to twist fringes by hand, make a knotted fringe, add tassels and finally make Leno. We didn't finish the Leno so now we all have homework!

    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 ...

    ... Who knows how far the have to travel every day. I love the many old stone walls still standing. They separated properties for centuries

    We passed beautiful Yaylakavak Baraji (reservoir). It looked like fish-farms in the center of it. Eventually we came out on pavement again.
