... everything else here. But that's not really why we didn't drink, it's just not so common here, and it was quite nice to have a booze detox - definitely helps when you need to get up early and cycle in the heat. And it is HOT. On the day we cycled into Antakya, the signs (neon time/temp signs are quite prevalent here) read 36 c, and there were many days that felt as hot. Wanted to wash our cycling clothes most nights, as we were pretty drenched all ...

Day 7 (cont'd): Turkish border - Hatay - Mersin

A travel blog entry by vonwerden
