    ... up above the city. From a vantage point we overlook the sea and a group of schoolkids approach us to ask us where we are from.

    ... the two don’t go together here because we could find plenty of places to get a coffee, a few pastry shops but none that did both. Finally we bought a pastry and made our own coffee.

    After an hour or two of walking around the town we decided that the guide book was right and there really was very little to see here. What had once been the old Turkish quarter consisted of one ruined fort, a very modern concrete mosque, a clock tower, ...
