... and fresh. We followed the sea cost towards the sea port, in order to find out how to take the ferry to Baku in Azerbaijan. There we met nice Turkish truck drivers (aka "Truckys" for Sally) who tried to help us with the ferry tickets and information, and with whom we shared a very nice meal, some of their local liquor, tea and pomegranate juice. And finally an old, knowledgeable, German-speaking and wise driver advised us strongly to take the plane to reach the Caucasus in stead of ...
