(C) So we drove all the way from Pamukkale to Ayvalik yesterday and just about wore out our romance when we got to Ayvalik after dark and started looking for a hotel via Rough Guide in the dark.  The streets weren't just narrow, they were impassable even for our teeny car.  The campground at Ada Camping was a total bust.  It might have been nice during the day, but in late evening, the crappy showers and lame tent spots were too much for this crew.  After almost staying in a cheap hotel in Alibey, we made another run at Ayvalik to no avail.  Approaching really late, we went back to Alibey and grabbed the first guesthouse we could find.  This place is really one of the nicest joints on our trip.  Just near the edge of town on the Ayvalik Caddesi, we have a kitchen, bathroom and separate bedroom right off the street.  It's a BEAUTIFUL apartment for only about $80/night.  Granted about 4 times the cost of the campground, but we have a hot shower and pool and breakfast and giant bed - with sheets and pillows.  We'll be here two nights so it's worth it.
    Funniest part is this morning - after breakfast and while Sara was in the shower - we had a kitty outbreak.  We came back from breakfast - which was awesome with tomatoes and cucumbers of course - and entered our room via the patio.  We left our bedroom door open onto the pool because the weather is so awesome.  Sara went to get ready and I took a seat in the living room to scan the travel books for today's route.  Then I saw a kitty in my living room.  Of course, since the kitty whisperer was in the shower, I chatted for a minute and offered up some sort of cured meat we had in the fridge.  Then I got up to share this funny story with travel partner and walked into the bedroom where I see about 10 kitties crawling all over the place.  Apparently, they thought the open door meant "come in and have a kitty party."  After opening both doors and stashing the cured meats, I finally shooed the visitors back onto the patio.  Sara didn't believe me of course.  Sadly, I have no pictures of this.
    Today, we go to Bergama and we're pretty excited about it.
