A false phoenix

Had breakfast in the "hotel". Amazingly good, considering the state of the bathrooms. The breakfast was a frying pan of fried eggs, sizzling hot but a bit too salty, bread, olives cheese and coffee. All for 15TL, about 6 for both.
Would have set off more quickly, but for the gang of Kyrgyzstan lorry drivers who gathered round, wanting to …

On our drive to Georgia, we pulled into the pretty little town of Rize, Turkey. We drove around looking for a place to eat hoping to find a Ramadan tent for another nice meal.
We couldn't find one so we parked up and looked for a place to eat. The streets were deserted and everywhere we went to look to eat was chock full of people right out to tables on the street sitting with food in front of them but not eating. They ...

... belt we pressed on to Sumela. We had, however, forgotten that it was a Sunday, with the subsequent weekend monastic rush resulting in complete chaos. The climb up was a good test for Blanche, with some reasonably steep sections, loose surfaces and even a 'river' crossing. Of course she chewed it all up and wanted more...

The monastery itself was pretty cool, high up in the hills set into ...

Year in Review

... told my students last night that I have great respect for them. I can imagine how difficult it is to go into a Turkish class, taught entirely in Turkish, and keeping up with everything. Oh and this is after I've maybe worked a 9 hour day. For people who have almost no free-time, they are in great spirits, and their motivation keeps them at it. They need a certain score on an international exam, they need to advance in their job, and language is the best way for them ...

... mentioned how the stray cats and dogs rule the streets, especially at night. But people will semi-adopt the street animals, throwing collars on them, feeding them scraps from their balconies in the morning, petting them on a bench at night. It's actually quite endearing. The cat mobs fight often. Yesterday on my way to work I saw a one-eyed feline friend rolling
about and sunning itself happily on the sidewalk, looking careless as can be. On almost ...

Oerrated. Dont know what they are trying to do. The room we were showed to stank of cigarette smoke. We waited 20 minutes for them to find an alternative room. And why were they cleaning rooms at 7.00 at night?
The room we were put in, there was a sticky mess on the bedside table, the shower head is the basic Poundland type, the front of house staff dont speak any English, but they charge their rate in US dollars?
The dinner was cold, the menu choices werent all available, the drinks took an age to come and had to be chased.
Over all, it appears that someone is trying to set up a western system prior to being welcomed into the EU, so they can say "Look what we already have" But someone needs to tell them that a 5 star hotel needs more than just a list of facilities. Servive is needed, and its just not there.
Quite frankly, if it werent late and raining, I'd have gone elsewhere. We have had some great hotels in Turkey, but this wasnt one of them.
