... us like a brick wall! We drove up thinking that there were only a few cars in the queue and thought we’d be through in no time at all. Little did we realise that the queue for the border was about 3 miles long, so long that it stretched all the ways back passed the “Welcome to Turkey” sign, even though we were going to Georgia. Not only that, but the place was filthy, there was rubbish everywhere!!!! There was a convergence of fellow ralliers though, which meant that ...

... pears, pomegranates, apples, plums, tomatoes and cucumbers, pickles of many descriptions in jars. Trish bought a jar of pomegranate molasses too. We went through the fish aisles with huge fish carcasses and avoided the meat aisles. I had a few volunteers who wanted their photos taken and took a photo of our dried fruit vendor.

We leaped from taxis gridlocked in rush hour traffic in and out of the metro into buses eventually running long stretches (Diana in jandels) only to have to wait 15 minutes since our visas were still not ready yet. Many would have given up at this point but knowing that it could be days till the next ferry we struggled on.
