On our drive to the main road, ...
... a kilo of strawbs and a punnet of white mulberries for about $3; plus apricots and peaches. Eating that through the day makes us feel better. Breakfast is cheese, bread, olives, stras type meat, tomato, cucumber, egg [sometimes hard boiled or maybe omelette]; plus usually honey, jam. We had a fab omelette made and served in a neat copper based dish in Safranbolu. The wine is great but expensive.
Plenty of Efes beer though
It's such a perfect day (Lou Reed)
Let me tell you about our first 24 hours in Turkey. May it be a happy omen for the rest to come :-)
We arrived around 8 pm in a harbor town called Tasucu. Luckily we had a couch reserved and Seckin even came to the harbor to pick us up. At the ferry we had met two Australians who didn't know where to go yet.
Seckin was so nice to drive them to the hotel of a friend of his and negotiate a ...
... destination. We stopped at a beach and Scott and Simon swam the 200 metres from the shore to the castle and had a wander, while I sat in the shade taking photos of their journey. The castle was very cool, but I was told that Mamure Castle was probably better.
On the way out we passed another castle on the shore very near to Maiden's Castle, but the boys were tired from the swims and wanted to get to Mersin so we could rest, so we forged onward.
... Seriously, no.
Simon actually ate it all - it seems ice cream can mask the most vile flavours for him, but then again, this is a guy who ate ice cream with tomato sauce (a less vinegary ketchup) on it - but we were both feeling pretty ill as we slowly stumbled back to the hotel. Scott and Simon settled in for a few games of chess on the chessboard that Simon had purchased somewhere along the way, while I had a shower and headed to bed.
