      ... grumpy people (I'm not sure I saw a single smile the first 24 hours I was there) and very little english speaking Turks (completely understandable, but I was still hopeful once we hit more touristy areas where it was not much better). Turkey was another interesting border experience. We boated over from Kos and our 20 minute boat ride turned into a 1 hour boat ride almost causing us to be late for our flight.

First we looked in the cisterna bisilca which is a system that the Romans used to capture the water from about 25 kilometres away and stored it in this ...

      ... my, 25 lira and a small bottle of Rose Oil later...I did. Surprisingly, (perhaps due to Overwhelm) The Spice Bazaar did't have this effect on me. There were a LOT of people...and a LOT of beautifully poured piles of spices. A stall owner did bring a handful of dried apple tea to my nose and THAT got both my attention and a quick nod! YES! YES!
